» FIFA could stop Chelsea’s planned ?200million summer spending spree before their transfer ban begins. The Blues hope their two-window ban for breaching 29 transfer rules will be delayed by appealing the punishment. 2 Zinedine Zidane, who guided Real Madrid to three successive Champions League triumphs, is high on Chelsea’s wish list to replace manager Maurizio Sarri But FIFA rules state the ban still stands even during an appeal process.
Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid were found guilty of similar offences, but were able to make signings during their appeals. Chelsea, who have until Monday to submit their written appeal, are hoping the delay in the ban will allow them to splash the cash this summer. FIFA’s appeal committee chairman Thomas Bodstrom will decide if Chelsea’s ban is delayed or starts this summer.

The club are reportedly prepared to give the Frenchman a ?200million transfer kitty, and the ban may make it harder to convince Zidane to move to Stamford Bridge. 2 Luis Suarez was signed by Barcelona in 2014 while FIFA reviewed their transfer ban appeal Chelsea were slapped with a two-window transfer ban and fined ?460,000 last month after FIFA’s investigation into the signings of foreign players under the age of 18.
The Blues face a fight on their hands to keep hold of star man Eden Hazard, who has been heavily linked with a move to Real. And if their transfer ban starts in the next window, it would make it impossible for the club to sign a replacement. » » 1 Paul Scholes Despite a star-studded Rest of the World team, including Ronaldinho, Robert Pires and Luis Figo, it was Paul Scholes pulling all the strings for Great Britain and Ireland in David Beckham’s ‘Match for the Children’ at Old Trafford.
The former Manchester United midfilelder opened the scoring in the UNICEF charity clash, which finished 3-1 to the hosts, after heading home a trademark cross from Beckham to leave Red Devils supporters drooling over what used to be at the Theatre of Dreams. But he wasn’t the only United legend to catch the eye, with Ryan Giggs and Beckham turning back the clock. Unsurprisingly, therefore, with Louis van Gaal’s side yet to convince in the Premier League, some fans even want the trio back. Have a read of reactions to the charity match, on Twitter, below. «
