Chelsea: Man City rich enough to buy a new level of FIFA hypocrisy

Chelsea’s transfer ban, a result of violating FIFA’s laws regarding the transfers of under-18 players, has been one of the defining characteristics of the current state of the club.

The reasons for FIFA’s rule make general sense: concerns about the exploitation and trafficking (their words, not mine) of minors.

With all that as history and precedent, earlier this week, Manchester City were hit with a fine of around £315,000 for the same infractions FIFA charged Chelsea.

For reference, the highest profile of the 29 infractions Chelsea was charged with involved the acquisition of Bertrand Traore in 2013.

City fans will probably laugh in my (virtual) face for complaining, and supporters of smaller clubs will roll their eyes at my griping about the travails of mega-rich clubs.

What’s more, FIFA initially recommended a four-window transfer ban, which is nearly unprecedented.

Manchester City were hit with a smaller fine and a transfer ban of exactly zero windows.
