Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain no longer risk UEFA fines and penalties for breaking 'Financial Fair Play' rules in 2014.

UEFA says both clubs complied with ongoing clauses, such as limiting their spending on wages and transfers through 2016.

It means Man City and PSG each forfeited only €20 million (US$21.4 million) in Champions League prize money instead of the maximum €60 million (US$64.2 million) that UEFA threatened to withhold.

UEFA says its club finance panel also cleared Dinamo Zagreb from further risk of sanctions.

Champions League semi-finalist Monaco, Roma and Fenerbahce all complied with the rules this season and face ongoing monitoring, UEFA says.

Inter Milan, Besiktas and Trabzonspor missed UEFA targets this season and will have their sanctions extended.
