Manchester City face FIFA transfer ban

A transfer ban for the Premier League champions would come less than a month after Chelsea were hit with the same sanction for 29 breaches of article 19 of FIFA's regulations on the transfer and status of players

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Manchester City could miss out of Champions League next term due to their Financial Fair Play row with Europe's football governing body, UEFA.

Pep Guardiola was thought to be planning a summer swoop for Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, as well as a long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

The west London club have already lodged an appeal against that punishment but were told by world governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association last week that the sanction would not be frozen while the case is being reviewed, as Chelsea had hoped.

It seems the ban would be stemming from the relationship City forged with FC Nordsjaelland and the Right to Dream football academy located in Ghana - owned by Tom Vernon who is the president of the Dutch club.

And that investigation was broadened later in 2018 when a second Danish newspaper, Politiken, published a story that 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.

Asked whether his squad was good enough to cope with a potential ban, he said: "It's good, the squad is really good".

He said: "I can not say in every conference".

Chelsea were recently told that they will be unable to sign players for the next year and, according to The Sun, City will receive an identical punishment to their Premier League rivals.

Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference: "We don't have too many players". I said what I said, I was clear in my opinion.

"I understand your job, I answered five questions last week, I can not be the right guy". I'm concerned what I have to do with my job. City have welcomed the UEFA investigation into allegations that the club tried to circumvent Financial Fair Play regulations, and Blues boss Pep Guardiola said on the issue last week: "I said last season I trust a lot what the club has done because I know them". Even though the bans of Real Madrid and Barcelona were cut short, the appeals from Chelsea and Atletico Madrid were turned down without a blink of an eye.
