Manchester City fined but avoid transfer ban for breaching Fifa rules on under-18 signings

Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban after admitting breaching Fifa rules on signing youth players.

The Premier League champions have been fined 370,000 Swiss Francs (£315,000).

Fifa said City breached article 19 of its regulations: “International transfers of players are only permitted if the player is over the age of 18.”

City say the breaches, which all occurred before December 2016, were as a result of “misinterpretation of the regulations in question”.

Chelsea were banned from signing players for two transfer windows for a similar rule breach – but the club are appealing to have that overturned.
