City escape transfer ban, fined £315,000

Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban after FIFA found the Premier League club guilty of falling foul of regulations regarding the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.

Instead, football’s governing body has fined the Abu Dhabi-owned side £315,000 which may come as a surprise to some after Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea were banned from signing new players as punishment for similar offences.

Chelsea are currently serving a transfer ban for breaching article 19 of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players in the case of 29 minors, and the club was unable to sign players this summer as part of a one-year punishment.

Barcelona, meanwhile, served a ban in 2014 while Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid were also hit with punishments for the same offence.
