A member of UEFA’s executive committee, Jesper Moller, has revealed that the European football governing body will ban Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester City from the Champions League semi-finals this Friday.
This means that Paris Saint-Germain would be crowned champions for this season.
Real Madrid were billed to take on Chelsea, while Manchester City tackle PSG in the semi-finals later this month.
But due to their involvement in the new European Super League, the clubs may start facing the consequences of their decision sooner.
Moller, the Danish FA chairman, told Danish outlet DR Sport that the members of the breakaway group who remain in this season’s Champions League will be removed from the competition.
“[Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea] are going out, and I expect that to happen on Friday,” Møller said. “And then you have to see how to finish the Champions League.
“There must be one extraordinary executive committee meeting on Friday. I have an expectation that the 12 clubs will be thrown out,” Møller said.
Earlier, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin had vowed to use all the tools and sanctions at his disposal to fight back against the 12 teams who announced their plans to join the Super League.
