Man City rocked by threat of two-window transfer ban

Man City rocked by threat of two-window transfer ban

Manchester City's nervous wait for an outcome in the Benjamin Garré case has ended, with news surfacing on Tuesday morning that they have been cleared of any wrong doing and will face no transfer ban.

Their claim was that City acted "unethically" by approaching their starlet when he was just 15 years of age and signing him just days after his 16th birthday.

The newly-crowned Premier League champions were accused of breaching rules by the player's former club Velez Sarsfield when they signed Garre from them in 2016.

Federation Internationale de Football Association agreed with City, saying that because Garre holds an Italian passport, he was free to leave Argentina after his 16th birthday, however Velez took the case to CAS. Real Madrid have also been given a one-window ban in the past.

Federation Internationale de Football Association sanctioned the transfer and Man City were confident CAS would rule in their favour.

That said, they would have the right to a technical appeal that could further delay the process and allow Guardiola to stockpile players this summer.

The Argentine club claimed City broke Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations, which only allow players under 18 to move between clubs in European countries.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have been subjected to transfer embargoes in recent years after being found guilty of breaching rules regarding the signing of global players younger than 18. City argued that Garre held an Italian passport and was entitled to move after his 16th birthday.

Liverpool, Manchester United and co. will all be desperately hoping that City are curtailed in their attempts to continue to buy success.
