Manchester City confident they have avoided TWO-window transfer ban

Manchester City confident they have avoided TWO-window transfer ban

The Manchester club recently signed 16-year-old winger Benjamin Garre from Argentinian club Velez Sarsfield, who have lodged a formal complaint about City's approach for the player.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) are set to release a verdict in the coming days and it is understood that City were given indication on Tuesday morning that they had won.

After a significant delay, a ruling has now been delivered that backs City's claim that Garre's Italian passport entitled him to make the move and supports FIFA's original decision.

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.

Of some encouragement to City is that Federation Internationale de Football Association ratified the transfer and upheld City's argument that their capture of Garre, who is now playing in their Under 23 side, was not a breach of the regulations because he holds an Italian passport. The court will publish the reasoned verdict on Friday.

Parlamento adelanta sesión para elegir a sucesor de Raúl Castro
La reunión estaba pactada para el día 19 de abril, por lo que ahora se especula que la elección se llevará a cabo en dos días: miércoles y jueves, si bien ninguna instancia oficial ha confirmado la versión.

Premier League champions City could have been banned from signing players in the next two transfer windows had they been found guilty of breaching worldwide transfer regulations when they signed Garre in 2016.

City could have been banned from signing players for up to two transfer windows had the ruling not gone in their favour.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have all been subjected to transfer bans for breaching rules around the signing of global players under the age of 18 in recent years. That's not good behaviour between two clubs.

Velez then took the case to the CAS and City were facing the prospect of being banned from registering any new players for two transfer windows, similar to previous punishments given to Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

City insist that they acted within the rules but if found guilty it could throw Pep Guardiola's summer transfer plans into disarray.
