Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid could be disqualified from this season's Champions League later this week due to their involvement in the newly announced European Super League, UEFA executive committee member Jesper Moller said.

"(Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Chelsea) are going out, and I expect that to happen on Friday," Moller told Danish broadcaster DR Sport on Monday, according to CBS Sports' Mike Goodman. "And then you have to see how to finish the Champions League.

"There must be one extraordinary executive committee meeting on Friday," he added.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin also slammed the proposed European Super League on Monday, saying that players who compete in the tournament risk being banned from continental and international competitions.

It's unclear how the Champions League would progress if the three clubs are disqualified from competing in the semifinals later this month.

Real Madrid are scheduled to face Chelsea in the penultimate round, while Manchester City were drawn against Paris Saint-Germain.

The trio are part of 12 teams who announced Sunday the formation of the European Super League, which would rival UEFA's Champions League.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Juventus are the other nine clubs that have agreed to participate in the breakaway tournament.

Additionally, there might also be an announcement Friday regarding possible banishments from the Europa League - Arsenal and Manchester United are scheduled to appear in the semifinals at the end of April.
