Manchester City could be stripped of their 2014 Premier League title, according to the Daily Mail.
The Citizens were kicked out of the Champions League for two years after breaching Financial Fair Play [FFP] rules.
This has led to speculation over Guardiola’s future, and the Etihad could look to sell players and have been tipped to offload Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte.
But they could be in line to lose something far more valuable, with their 2014 title under threat.
However, because they could receive a backdated points deduction, the back-to-back Premier League champions could be forced to return their title.
According to The Daily Mail, the Premier League are inquiring over any potential breaches of the rules and could take action themselves.
GoalBall understand that the period of time for the investigation would be between 2012 and 2016, meaning their second Premier League title would be in question.
