UEFA will reportedly take an official stance on the situation surrounding Juventus and their potential suspension from European competitions after the conclusion of the Champions League final between Inter and Manchester City on Saturday evening.
For several months already, Juve have been under investigation by European football’s governing body for alleged violations in relation to UEFA rules over licences and financial fair play.
According to Tuttosport, the club is hopeful that through their co-operation, ‘close relations’ with the supervisory body and having agreed to a recent plea bargain with the FIGC Court of Appeal back in Italy, that UEFA will deliver a ‘positive’ outcome in regards to their eligibility to play in European competitions moving forwards.
Earlier this week, the Bianconeri also released a statement confirming their official exit from the European Super League project, leaving Real Madrid and Barcelona as the only sides left standing from the original band of 12 potential breakaway clubs.
Tuttosport writes that at worst, the Bianconeri could face a one-year expulsion from UEFA competitions, or be hit with a financial penalty.
The Turin-based outlet believes that UEFA will make a decision some time after the Champions League final is wrapped up on Saturday.
