Chelsea investigated by Federation Internationale de Football Association over young signings

CITY are set to be investigated by Federation Internationale de Football Association for breaching regulations on signing young players.

The club were also banned for two years from signing academy players and fined £100,000.

"We can not provide any details concerning the matters under investigation".

Federation Internationale de Football Association have launched an inquiry into Chelsea's dealings with signing foreign under 18 players.

"The only other exception is for transfers within either the European Union or European Economic Area (EEA), where the minimum age is 16".

However, governing body FIFA stressed when contacted by Press Association Sport on Wednesday, they would not confirm which specific transfers were part of the current on-going investigation.

SL Green Realty Corp. (SLG)
Turning to Navistar International Corporation (NYSE:NAV), its shares were trading at $40.06 a gain of $0.92, on the trading floor. Private Asset Management Inc. boosted its holdings in shares of Kimco Realty Corporation by 1.8% during the 2nd quarter.

Chelsea have one of the most successful youth programmes in Europe and have won the Uefa Youth League - the under-19 competition including that year's senior Champions League clubs - twice.

This will be the third time in eight years that Chelsea will come under scrutiny over the transfer of young players.

Atlético Madrid are now under a transfer embargo for breaching rules over the signing of minors, a decision that was upheld on appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Liverpool and Manchester City have also been given a slap on the wrist by the Premier League for their conduct regarding the signing of academy players.

Chelsea are adamant they comply with all the regulations when recruiting players.

In 2009 they were banned for two windows because of the deal to sign Gael Kakuta from Lens - although they successfully appealed that ruling.
