Manchester City 'to be hit by two-window ban in coming days'

Manchester City Face FIFA Transfer Ban Report

Manchester City Face FIFA Transfer Ban Report

Manchester City are expected to be hit with the same Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban as Chelsea for allegedly breaching rules on youth players.

The Sun says City are set to receive the same punishment as Chelsea did recently, when they were banned for two transfer windows.

Premier League rivals Chelsea have already been hit with a transfer ban for breaching FIFA's regulations on the transfer and status of players.

Fifa's action is unlikely to be announced before next month as the final parts of the case have still to be...

If true, that would be a breach of the rules preventing third-party ownership, as City could be argued to have undue influence over another club's players.

City's squad faces a test of its strength on Saturday as the club face Swansea in the FA Cup quarter-finals without a handful of players.

City will be without John Stones, Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany, Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho against Swansea, and Guardiola said they would also be unavailable for their countries during the global break.

Eating eggs can lead to higher risk of cardiovascular disease
They can still be part of a healthy diet, but in smaller quantities than many Americans have gotten used to, the researchers say. The findings could be worrying for the average American, who eats between three to four eggs per week, according to the study.

City manager Pep Guardiola refused to be drawn on the report at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

'John Stones was on the bench (against Schalke) but is not ready to play.

Thus the fifth-place team at the end of the campaign will play in the Champions League next term. "That is the most important thing right now".

The world governing body have also been investigating claims that City signed a deal with Tom Vernon, the president of Danish club FC Nordsjaelland, for the free acquisition of talent from his African football academy that could have breached TPO rules.

Guardiola was unwilling to speak further on the matters.

"I understand your job, I answered five questions last week, I can not be the right guy". I'm very clear: the club made a statement. I am not even the right guy to talk about that.

"What happens is going to happen".
