Manchester City to be handed transfer ban by Federation Internationale de Football Association

Manchester City face transfer ban from Fifa for flouting financial fair play rules Report

The English outfit will not be able to buy their players until June 2020 as per the reports. The Blues, who were caught for a similar shunning the rules are now serving a ban which will only end after the next season.

Chelsea have been banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows - they are appealing against the sanction - and City are expected to receive the same punishment once the case against them has been completed.

The ban apparently stems from the club's relationship with FC Nordsjaelland and Ghana's Right to Dream football factory.

Last year, two players from the academy, Sierra Leone's George Davies and Ghanaian Dominic Oduro, told Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten that they signed for City and played in youth matches before they turned 18.

That investigation was broadened later in 2018 when additional Danish reports claimed City had a secret deal with Vernon to have first refusal on the best prospects from Right to Dream.

However, back in November 2015, the Premier League agreed an amnesty with clubs, during which time if they admitted to breaching rules around signing players aged between 12 and 16 then they would be given a free pass.

Federation Internationale de Football Association are looking into City's alleged signing of eight players aged under 18 from overseas.

They're also facing an investigation from UEFA on possible breaches of the Financial Fair Play laws.

In regards to global transfers of players aged under 18, they are only allowed in three circumstances: the players' parents have moved to the new country for non-footballing reasons, they and the club are based close to the relevant national border or the transfer takes place within the European Economic Area and the player is at least 16.

As well as Chelsea, Spanish trio Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been punished for signing under-age players from overseas in the past.

City, who face Swansea in the FA Cup on Saturday as they continue to compete for four trophies, have been drawn against Tottenham in the Champions League quarterfinals, and Guardiola said the two-legged tie was "50-50". German publication Der Spiegel exploited their emails and exposed their breach of Financial Fair Play rules.

It is the second successive year that City have faced Premier League opponents in Europe's premier club competition, having lost to Liverpool in the last eight last season. However, that is not against the rules.

Guardiola has said he trusts those running the club and last week called for any investigations to be concluded quickly. "The attempt to damage the club's reputation is clear".
