Man City cleared by CAS over signing of Benjamin Garre

Man City cleared by CAS over signing of Benjamin Garre

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) are set to release a verdict in the coming days and it is understood that City were given indication on Tuesday morning that they had won.

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.

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.

The newly-crowned Premier League champions were accused of breaching rules by the player's former club Velez Sarsfield when they signed Garre from them in 2016.

The English Premier League champion said it could register Garre with the English Football Association and FIFA because of his Italian passport.

Having already seen their case upheld by FIFA, Manchester City were always confident that the CAS would rule similarly, and have received a positive result. Benjamin Garre (standing) in action for Man City academy team.

This bandh was supported by Left parties, Andhra's chief opposition party YSRCP, the Congress and Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena party. Andhra Pradesh bandh LIVE UPDATES: Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said bandhs were not welcome as they hamper development.

That case has been running since July, with a court case heard nine months ago. To further complicate matters Velez have also taken Federation Internationale de Football Association to CAS after they rejected their original complaint in September 2016.

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.

"He (Garre) left here a couple of days before his 16th birthday, he spent a few days in Germany and he entered England one day after his 16th birthday".

The player's parents move to the country in which the new club is located for non-footballing reasons.

City insist that they acted within the rules but if found guilty it could throw Pep Guardiola's summer transfer plans into disarray. If they are disciplined by CAS, they will most likely appeal and delay the implementation of the ban.

The Premier League club robustly defended their position.
