Man City cleared over Garre transfer

  • Garre was signed from Argentine club Velez Sarsfield only days after his 16th birthday

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

Velez complained to Federation Internationale de Football Association in 2016 that City broke rules preventing trafficking of minors by signing Garre after he turned 16.

The Argentine club claimed that Federation Internationale de Football Association only allow players under-18 to move between clubs in European countries, and took their case to the CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) last July.

However, City argued that, because Garre holds an Italian passport, he was free to leave Argentina after his 16th birthday and were initially supported by Federation Internationale de Football Association before Velez took the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Regulations dictate that clubs within the European Union (EU) are not allowed to sign player from outside under the age of 18 - this can of course be sidestepped if the player's family relocates as was the case when Barcelona signed a 13-year-old Lionel Messi in 2000.

As such, City facing the prospect of being banned from registering players in each of the next two transfer windows - a fate suffered previously by Atletico Madrid - if the CAS side with Velez.

City have outspent rival teams.

While Cas was unavailable to comment it is understood City have already been informed that the court has upheld Fifa's original ruling.

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

Spanish giants Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have been banned for breaching rules governing the signing of worldwide players under the age of 18 in recent years. That's not good behaviour between two clubs.

Guardiola is looking to add two or three more players to his squad in a bid to create what Vincent Kompany termed a "dynasty" after Manchester United's defeat by West Bromwich Albion handed City the championship on Sunday.

Velez officials took the Premier League champions and Federation Internationale de Football Association to CAS last summer following the sale of teenager Garre to the Etihad.

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.
