Man City rocked by threat of two-window transfer ban

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

Manchester City could live to rue the transfer of a 16-year-old prospect as it has emerged that they may be facing a lengthy transfer ban.

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. Guardiola wants to add to his squad but there is serious concern the court will decide City breached transfer rules.

As reported by the Telegraph, the club will not face a two-window transfer embargo after CAS found nothing wrong with the club's activities that year, but Velez will now have the right to appeal the decision. His former club, Velez Sarsfield in Argentina, claim that City approached the player when he was 15 before signing him a few days after he turned 16. An official announcement from CAS is expected later this week.

Were Pep Guardiola not able to invest further in his squad for a whole season it would be a major blow to their hopes of retaining the Premier League title and winning the Champions League for the first time in their history.

The Argentine club claimed City broke Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations, which only allow players under 18 to move between clubs in European countries. Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have all been subjected to transfer bans in recent years after being found guilty of breaching rules concerning the signing of global players under 18. City argued that Garre held an Italian passport and was entitled to move after his 16th birthday.
