In addition, Federation Internationale de Football Association are also considering a special investigation for Man City, after it emerged the Premier League defending champions are allegedly funding the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana.

Pep Guardiola was thought to be planning a summer swoop for Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, as well as a long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

Manchester City, however, can expect a youth transfer ban if they are found guilty of handing a scouting contract to Jadon Sancho's agent, Emeka Obasi, worth £200,000, as part of the deal to take the player from Watford when he was 14 years old, details of which were first published in German news magazine Der Spiegel and based upon Football Leaks documents and emails.

City are now under investigation by the Football Association and Premier League for possible infractions in financial fair play and youth transfers.

However, UEFA opened a formal investigation into the Premier League champions' financial conduct earlier this month amid a number of alleged violations.

Sierra Leone player George Davies and Ghana youngster Dominic Oduro revealed that they have signed for City and played in youth matches before they turned 18.


"The Investigatory Chamber of the independent UEFA Club Financial Control Body has today opened a formal investigation into Manchester City FC for potential breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations".

This breaches having third-party owners hip of players as it seemingly gives City a clear hold on a player in another club.

City were drawn against Premier League rivals Tottenham in the Champions League quarter-finals on Friday and Guardiola knows his side will have to be at their best to control their potent attacking threat.

"I am not the right guy to talk about what the club says", he said. "I don't have any more comments", Guardiola said.

When asked if City's squad would be strong enough to withstand a transfer ban, Guardiola responded: "Of course. I'm concerned with my job, what will happen, will happen".

Chelsea along with the Spanish trio Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid have faced transfer bans beforehand.
