Manchester City banned from Champions League for two seasons.

Without UEFA prize money, City would have made a pre-tax loss of at least £75 million last season.

Man City have also been handed a €30 million fine. The club is set to appeal their ban to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Compared to rivals as Liverpool and Chelsea, Man City earn a very high sum from commercial income.

A Premier League points deduction could be on the table following UEFA's verdict.
