Manchester City are set to miss out on the Champions League for the next two seasons after breach of Uefa Financial Fair Play rules has seen them hit with a two-year ban.

Will the Premier League just have three teams involved or, if City finish in the top four of the top flight, will the fifth placed team get a spot in the Champions League?

It seems that the latter possibility is the most likely, if City do end up in the top four of the Premier League, then the team that finishes fifth will be playing in the Champions League next season.

The Independent reports that it is 'highly likely' the champions will be docked points by the Premier League, which could see them finish outside the top four and then the normal Champions League spots would remain.

City plan to appeal the decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport and hope to avoid any Champions League ban or points deduction.

The Premier League champions were hit with the two-year ban and a €30m fine for deliberately misleading UEFA over the value of a sponsorship deal in order to meet FFP rules which require clubs to break even.
