Manchester City face shock transfer ban for TWO windows with verdict expected on controversial signing of teenager Benjamin Garre .

But there is serious concern that CAS will rule in favour of Velez Sarsfield, the Argentine club who claim City acted unethically by contacting Garre when he was 15 and then committed a breach of transfer rules by signing the winger only days after his 16th birthday.

If City do lose the case, they face the prospect of a two-window transfer ban that could prevent them from registering players this summer and in January 2019.

That said, they would have the right to a technical appeal that could further delay the process and allow Guardiola to stockpile players this summer.

It is anticipated he will look to spend a further £100million on a defensive midfielder, an attacking midfielder and possibly another centre half in an attempt to build a squad robust enough to deal with the demands of the Champions League as well as the Premier League.

Of some encouragement to City is that FIFA ratified the transfer and upheld City’s argument that their capture of Garre, who is now playing in their Under 23 side, was not a breach of the regulations because he holds an Italian passport. City insist they acted within the rules.

Velez, however, claim that FIFA rules only allow players under 18 to move between clubs in Europe and do not include South America. To complicate matters, Velez have also taken FIFA to CAS because the governing body rejected their original complaint in September 2016.
