Not long ago, Chelsea went through the same situation because of the transfer of at-the-time underaged Bertrand Traore.
According to the reports from England, FIFA will issue the official verdict “very soon” announcing City’s ban.
The Citizens are deprived of the benefit of the doubt considering they were already fined for similar misconduct in the past.
