Manchester City reportedly face a transfer ban for the next two windows – Fox Sports


Manchester City will reportedly be banned from making signings in the next two transfer windows by FIFA for breaking rules related to the protection of youth players and third-party ownership.

The club is already being investigated by the Football Association and Premier League for allegations related to youth transfers and financial fair play rules, with the latter also of interest to European governing body UEFA. That investigation could result in City receiving a Champions League ban.

  • The London club have already lodged an appeal against that punishment. FIFA have been investigating City’s international transfers for several years. However, according to The Sun, FIFA believes City have crossed the line in regards to their relationship with FC Nordsjaelland and the Right To Dream academy in Ghana, owned by the Danish side’s president Tom Vernon. Last year, two players from the academy, Sierra Leone’s George Davies and Ghanaian Dominic Oduro, told Danish media they signed for City and played in youth matches before they turned 18.
