FIFA Clears Juventus Over Pogba’s Transfer To Man Utd

The world football governing body, FIFA have cleared Italian giants of any wrongdoing in the transfer of Frenchman, Paul Pogba to Manchester United.

FIFA announced in May that they had requested information from both clubs on the then world-record transfer £89.3m (€105.2m) from the Serie A club in August 2016.

Football’s world governing body then cleared United in June but opened proceedings against the Italian club after reports emerged that agent Mino Raiola made £41m from the transfer – an arrangement which would have breached third-party ownership rules.

However, FIFA has now confirmed no punishment will be handed down, with a spokesman telling Press Association Sport: “The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided to dismiss all charges against the club Juventus FC for the apparent infringements of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP) in the frame of the transfer of the player Paul Labile Pogba given that the evidence available was not sufficient to establish to the appropriate standard of proof, that article 18ter of the RSTP had been breached.

“The Disciplinary Committee nevertheless underlined the importance of always preserving the independence of clubs and players in recruitment and transfer-related matters in order to ensure the integrity of matches and competitions.”
