FIFA affirms its commitee panel has denied a request from Chelsea to drop a one-year transfer ban as the club keeps on probing the ban.
Chelsea could now approach the Court of Arbitration for Sport to request for an interval, which would empower them to sign players during summer.
Fifa said that the club had broken its rules over the signing of 29 players more youthful than 18. The ban comes along with a £456,000 fine.
The FIFA panel director, Thomas Bodstrom, joined football’s supervising body after those Spanish cases were picked.
The signing of Bertrand Traore in 2014 began the investigation concerning their business. Which happened over three years, from 2015. They are thought to have purchased Traore before his eighteenth birthday, and have given misleading news when he was signed.
Chelsea paid his mother £155,000 in 2011 to take a first refusal decision on him and after that £13,000 to the club managed by his mother, AJE Bobo-Dioulasso.
Traore was sold to French side Lyon in June 2017 for £8.8million, having played 16 games for Chelsea.
