Settled!! FIFA Finally Clears Juventus Of Wrong-Doing In Pogba’s Transfer To Man United (Details)
FIFA has cleared Juventus of any wrongdoing, over Paul Pogba’s £89.3million move to Manchester United last summer.
The world football governing body announced in May, that it was investigating the then world-record transfer.
United were cleared in June, but FIFA opened proceedings against Juventus, with claims the Serie A side’s arrangement with agent Mino Raiola could have breached third-party ownership rules.
FIFA has now confirmed no action will be taken, 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 art. 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.”
