FIFA has given Manchester City a fine for breaching rules on the registering of young players but has not banned them from transfers.

Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban after FIFA confirmed the club will receive a £315,000 (339 thousand euros) fine for breaching regulations relating to the signing of young players. 

Chelsea were handed a one-year transfer ban and fined more than £460,000 in February after being found guilty of breaching rules about signing minors by FIFA.

However, City did not receive a transfer ban and were fined around £150,000 less than their Premier League rivals, with FIFA stating its disciplinary committee acknowledged the Premier League champions "accepted its responsibility" in the matter.

City, who are still currently under investigations from FIFA and UEFA with regards to financial fair play, were found to have breached article 19 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

FIFA's 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."
