Manchester City are reportedly due to get slapped with a transfer ban for the upcoming two windows by FIFA.
They have been found guilty of breaking the rules and regulations relating to youth player transfers and third-party ownership. They are currently also being investigated by the Football Association and the Premier League for breaching Financial Fair Play rules and mishandling youth players.
They are also in violation of UEFA’s laws which could potentially see them get banned from the Champions League.
This comes at a very crucial period of European football when only a month back, Chelsea got suspended from the transfer window for mishandling 29 cases of youth players. The Blues have submitted an appeal against the suspension but for now are barred from signing any players for the next 2 seasons.
Last year players from the City Academy, George Davies and Dominic Oduro had told the press that they had signed for the Premier League club and had even played in youth matches before turning 18.
Since then Davies has moved on to play in Latvia now while Oduro in the United States of America. The report from a Danish media outlet also shed light onto the Citizens’ secret deal to be the first ones to be offered all youth prospects from Right to Dream.
