Inter risk FFP sanctions?

Inter are seen as having fallen foul of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules and so may risk punishment in the coming days, whilst Roma are apparently just safe.

UEFA’s Club Financial Control Board [CFCB] are meeting today and tomorrow to discuss sanctions due on clubs that have breached FFP regulations.

Clubs are allowed to lose up to €45m over the last two years - 2011-12 and 2012-13 - but alongside Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City, the Gazzetta dello Sport report that Inter’s deficit will surpass this.

Speculation has been this week that PSG and City will be handed sanctions including a ‘large fine’ and an order to cut the number of players registered in the A team, which they can either accept, reject or negotiate with the CFCB.

The Gazzetta dello Sport report that whilst Juventus, Milan, Napoli and Fiorentina fall into the category of clubs cleared under FFP regulations, Roma are on the cusp, alongside Liverpool and Chelsea, for breaching the €45m deficit allowance.

However, this trio are seen to then fall under the deficit when the clause on discounting contracts signed before June 2010 is taken into account.

Juventus record losses of €57m over the past two seasons, but rules allow for this increase as the club invested in development of their stadium.

The CFCB is expected to announce results of their investigations and subsequent sanctions next week.
