Man City facing punishment over “illegal” links with Ghana academy side Right to Dream
English superpower house Manchester City could face a huge sanction from the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) over an alleged third party ownership with a link to Ghanaian Academy side Right to Dream Academy.
A leaked documents published by German magazine Der Spiegel claims City have been attached to Right to Dreams since 2010 where they link up trade with Danish side Nordsjaelland which is currently being run by owner of Right to Dream Tom Venon.
The report further stretches that Nordsjaelland can then only sell Right to Dream graduate players with City’s permission and that the Etihad club would then receive 25 per cent of any transfer fees making the English Club third party ownership of these players which turns to breach FIFA’s regulation.
FIFA are hence investigating the situation.
Should the English Champions be found guilty, they could face a heavy punishment on top of a transfer ban from the World’s football governing body.
Right to Dream have already transferred several players to Manchester City over the years.
Former Ghana youth stars Divine Naah, Thomas Agyemang and Godsway Donyoh who were all products of the Right to Dream Academy have all been through the ranks of Manchester City.
FIFA recently slapped Chelsea with a two-year transfer ban for the wrongful signing of teenagers.
