Paris St-Germain and Manchester City face fines of 60 million euros (S$104 million) and caps on the size of their Champions League squads for breaches of the rules.

Uefa has the power to ban teams from European competition if their losses exceed the limits allowed, but is expected to shy away from imposing that ultimate punishment when it hands out the sanctions.

Wenger, a known advocate of balanced accounting, prefers the more straightforward punishment.
