PARIS (AFP) - UEFA want to fine Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City 60 million euros (S$104 million) and limit their Champions League squads for breaching spending regulations, sources said Tuesday.

But Paris coach Laurent Blanc said the French club would be "a great team" next season even if it was punished.

The European governing body has focused on the two Middle East owned clubs among nine facing sanctions as part of a campaign to enforce its Financial Fair Play regulations.

According to sources close to the investigation, UEFA has proposed a fine of about 60 million euros against Paris and Manchester.
