The move would follow the recent ban placed upon Chelsea by FIFA for improper transfer dealings.

According to The Sun, FIFA are set to announce within days that City breached rules over the transfer of minors.

Pep Guardiola was thought to be planning a summer swoop for Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, as well as a long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

City also wanted a centre-back and a striker, though Guardiola will now reportedly be unable to sign any players until next summer.

The ban apparently stems from the club’s relationship with FC Nordsjaelland and Ghana’s Right to Dream football factory.

City signed George Davies and Dominic Oduro and played the pair in youth matches before they were 18.

It was alleged that City had a deal in place with Nordsjaelland owner Tom Vernon that they will have first refusal over both players.

This would be breaching FIFA guidelines over third-party ownership.

According to Fox Sports, the guidelines state that: “There are only three ways that international transfers for players under 18 can go through – if the players’ guardians move to the country for non-footballing reasons, if the family and the club are based close to the relevant national border or if the transfer takes place within the European Economic Area while the player is at least 16 years old.”

The Sun also claim that City’s transfer for Jadon Sancho in 2014 is under scrutiny by FIFA in a separate probe, meaning their punishment could be worse.

A Fifa insider told SunSport: “We have been investigating City as part of a long-term investigation.

“We expect there will be an announcement on City, very similar to the one we made on Chelsea, in the next week or two.

“It is coming very soon.”

Last month, Chelsea were hit with a two-window transfer ban for 29 breaches of FIFA transfer rules.

They originally planned to appeal against the ban, but FIFA have said they will not freeze the ban while the appeal takes place.

The West London outfit had planned to sign a bevy of new stars while the ban was frozen.
