City are already being investigated by the FA over the signing of Sancho MATTHEW ASHTON/GETTY IMAGESManchester City are expected to be hit with the same Fifa transfer ban as Chelsea for allegedly breaching rules on youth players. Chelsea have been banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows — they are appealing against the sanction — and City are expected to receive the same punishment once the case against them has been completed. A source with knowledge of the investigation told The Times that the breaches alleged to have been committed by City were similar to those that saw Chelsea sanctioned, and that it looks certain that the same two- window transfer ban is imposed. Fifa’s action is unlikely to be announced before next month as the final parts of the case have still to be completed.
