Manchester City avoid transfer ban over Benjamin Garre deal

Pep Guardiola is expected to spend big again this summer in order to retain the league title Pep Guardiola is expected to spend big again this summer in order to retain the league title

Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban over the controversial signing of Benjamin Garre.

Velez appealed to CAS after Federation Internationale de Football Association ruled in City's favour following a complaint about their move for Garre, the grandson of Oscar Garre - a member of Argentina's 1986 World Cup winning squad.

The newly crowned Premier League champions were under threat of being barred from signing new players for the next two transfer windows.

City are very much of the opinion that they did nothing wrong in this case although if they are found guilty they are likely to be slapped with a two-window transfer ban.

In that case, they would be prevented from registering players this summer and in January 2019. Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid have all been subjected to such bans in recent seasons after being found guilty of breaching the rules surrounding the signing of global players under 18.

City signed Garre at the age of 16 but Velez claimed the move breached FIFA's rules over the signing of minors from outside the European Union.

It is anticipated he will look to spend a further £100million on a defensive midfielder, an attacking midfielder and possibly another centre half in an attempt to build a squad robust enough to deal with the demands of the Champions League as well as the Premier League.

The Premier League side believed the player was free to join them as he had turned 16 and held an Italian passport but Velez claim that the rule only applies when two European teams are involved.

The Argentinian club have also taken Federation Internationale de Football Association to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after the governing body initially rejected their complaint in September 2016.

That is why a court case that was heard in July a year ago, with a verdict due by the end of September, has been delayed.
