FIFA had ruled on the case but in a brief press release,the football’s governing body revealed that the English Premier League champions did breach Article 19 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.
In that, City’s admission of guilt has been taken under consideration by the Disciplinary Board, which will see the team pay a fine of €339,000 (some $380,000).

Manchester City was being investigated on the same charges that ended with Chelsea’s transfer ban back in February, but the Blues failed to admit their guilt, which resulted in the two window transfer ban for the London-based side.
