Could Bayern Munich be among the clubs asking UEFA to impose sanctions on the European Super League “12”?

According to a report from RMC Sport journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, several big clubs are asking UEFA to hit Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atlético Madrid with a penalty for their actions over the past few days:

What the sanctions could entail, however, remains to be seen. “Living with the shame” might not exactly be enough for anyone who wants to see some real punishment doled out for the wannabe secession.

It would seem like monetary penalties would be in order as it would hard to ban those clubs from the Champions League (well, except Arsenal...they do a good job of that on their own).

Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and Paris Saint-Germain were the three mega-powers who did not align themselves to be founding members of the now ill-fated European Super League.
