Chelsea And Manchester City Under Probe By FIFA Over Signing Of Youth Players

Chelsea and Manchester City are being investigated by FIFA over their recruitment of young players.

This is the third time football's world governing body has looked at Chelsea, and in 2009 they were banned from making signings for two years.

In May, the Premier League fined City £300,000 and banned them from signing academy players for two years.

Fifa has stringent rules in place for signing players under the age of 18 to prevent exploitation and trafficking.

When asked by BBC Sport about Chelsea and Manchester City, it confirmed an investigation was "ongoing".

City have no knowledge of an investigation and are adamant they have done nothing wrong, while Chelsea insist they "comply with all Fifa statutes and regulations when recruiting players".

In 2009, Chelsea were banned from signing players after being found guilty of inducing Gael Kakuta to break his contract with Lens, though the sanction was lifted on appeal. They were also scrutinised last year for the 2014 signing of Bertrand Traore from Association Jeunes Espoirs De Bobo-Dioulasso.

Man City's punishment, meanwhile, came after they were found to have approached the family of two young players who were registered with other clubs.
