Man City faces FIFA transfer ban

Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus comes on as a substitute to replace Sergio Aguero as manager Pep Guardiola gives instructions to Leroy Sane during their Premier League match with Watford at Etihad Stadium in Manchester

As reported by The Sun, football's governing body has been conducting a thorough investigation and has confirmed City have breached the rules on the transfers of minors.

Interestingly, the latest development could see Pep Guardiola shelve plans to splash £150m to beef up the squad in the summer.

However, UEFA opened a formal investigation into the Premier League champions' financial conduct earlier this month amid a number of alleged violations.

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.

If that is true, the English outfit will face no lesser than a transfer ban because of the third-party infringement as City could be argued that they had the influence of other clubs to sign the players.

In addition, Federation Internationale de Football Association are also considering a special investigation for Man City, after it emerged the Premier League defending champions are allegedly funding the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana.

Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference: "We don't have too many players".

He said: "I can not say in every conference". "I was clear in my opinion, the club have made their statement, so I don't have any comments".

Speaking ahead of City's FA Cup quarter-final with Swansea City on Saturday, Guardiola said there is little he can do about the situation and remains firmly focused on delivering positive results for the club.

"I understand your job, I answered five questions last week, I can not be the right guy". "They [the owners] don't call me and explain what they are doing. I'm concerned with my job, what will happen, will happen". "It's good, it's good, the squad is good, really good". 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".

Chelsea along with the Spanish trio Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid have faced transfer bans beforehand.

Real were able to get their ban reduced on appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, an avenue Chelsea will also explore.
