Manchester City were fined £315,000 by FIFA for breaching the organisation's rules on signing under-18s. However, Chelsea were fined £460,000 and banned from making signings for a year for their own transfer breaches.

"FIFA officials have noted that the circumstances between the cases were different, with a spokesperson telling Sky Sports:"In its decision on Manchester City, FIFA's Disciplinary Committee took into consideration all specific circumstances of the case as well as the club's cooperation in clarifying the relevant facts.

In regards to the decision, FIFA's disciplinary code states the following: "The judicial body shall take into account all relevant factors of the case, including any assistance of and substantial cooperation by the offender in uncovering or establishing a breach of any FIFA rule, the circumstances and the degree of the offender's guilt and any other relevant circumstances."

"The Premier League champions released the following statement in response to the fine:"Manchester City FC can confirm that it has today received a reprimand and a CHF 370,000 fine following the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee concerning the international transfer of players under the age of 18, particularly in relation to their trial periods and participation in friendly games.

Both Chelsea and City were found to have breached article 19 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

A FIFA statement added: "The protection of minors is a key element in FIFA's overall regulatory framework relating to the transfer of players, and the effective enforcement of these rules is paramount, as has also been confirmed on various occasions by the Court of Arbitration for Sport."

City are still being investigated by FIFA and UEFA over potential financial fair play violations.
