UEFA has been rumoured for a while ready and imminent to punish the Italian duo for falling foul of FFP regulations, which limit a club’s spending to more sustainable means.

According to La Repubblica and the Gazzetta dello Sport, sanctions will arrive tomorrow.

La Repubblica suggest that Inter face a fin of between €6m and €8m, and the prospect of their international squad being limited to 21 players rather than 25.

The Nerazzurri are also facing the possibility of limitations in the transfer market, with their buying power linked to and constrained by their income.

Roma, meanwhile, may see their international revenue – from the Champions League and the Europa League campaigns this year– blocked as a sanction.

It is also reported by La Repubblica that other clubs could also be involved, with Milan reportedly to fall under scrutiny when they next qualify for Europe, as well as Lazio and Fiorentina.

La Repubblica also reports that tomorrow FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio will be meeting UEFA President Michel Platini to map out the plans for the recovery of Italian football.
