Anderlecht is by far not only as to alleged breaches in transfers of young people. The Fifa are still dozens of files. Including a number of larger issues surrounding international transfers of minor players to the top clubs.

Remarkable: the ‘Integrity and Compliance’department (I&C), that is within the Fifa consider clubs adhere to the regulations, has a number of great records for years ago completed. Nevertheless, the decisions by the disciplinary committee of the Fifa wait.

All of 2015

I&C has the files with the burden of proof, and proposals for penalties or internally transferred. They must further be prepared for the disciplinary committee. But after I&C run the files delay.

Just as the cases against Anderlecht, Antwerp and Zulte Waregem, the following studies in 2015 or completed in 2016. That is to say that the ‘Integrity and Compliance’, department of information has been collected and a response from the accused clubs has asked for. The parties were also informed that their case is internally transferred for further treatment.

But in January of this year there were, according to Fifa documents in which matters, not the statements of the disciplinary committee. Or since movement in the business has come, is unclear. The Fifa, nor the member clubs have any questions, or cannot answer.

Heavy penalty for Chelsea?

Abroad, the case pending against Chelsea may be the most remarkable. The club is a transferverbod for four transferperiodes above the head (plus a fine of 500,000 Swiss franc or 439.000 euros). If the disciplinary committee to the proposal of I&C, it would follow, would be a particularly harsh punishment. The longest transferverboden so far pronounced because of problematic transfers of minors, covered two transferperiodes (a few years ago, got Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, that the sentence plus fines).

In the case of Chelsea, sets I&C that Chelsea nineteen players, including fourteen minors, according to the rules has to be transferred. The research shows that the minors without the consent of the Wereldvoetbalbond internationally transferred and, in some cases, for Chelsea on the field have stood before a request for their transfer submitted.

Spanish clubs

Also the Spanish clubs Valencia and Villarealhebben, the ‘Integrity and Compliance’department, both of which dozens of foreign children and young people without consent of registered. I&C proposes to Valencia a penalty of 615.000 Swiss franc (540.000 euro), Villarreal a fine of 6to 45,000 Swiss francs (566.000 euro) and each time a transferverbod of one year for both clubs.

Also for Manchester City, according to I&C eight foreign minors played without the prior permission of the Fifa of their enrolment or transfer to the club. Manchester City hangs a transferverbod during two transferperiodes above the head, and a fine of at least up to 180,000 Swiss francs (158.000 euros).
