Manchester City's nervous wait for an outcome in the Benjamin Garré case has ended, with news surfacing on Tuesday morning that they have been cleared of any wrong doing and will face no transfer ban.

Garre was snapped up by City's academy just 10 days after his 16th birthday in the summer of 2016.

A spokesman for the Court of Arbitration for Sport said that a verdict on the case involving their controversial signing of Benjamin Garre was expected in the next seven days.

City beat Manchester United and Barcelona to sign him, with Garre, who is now 17, even having played in a trial game at United during his two-week trial there in 2015.

Velez, who have the right to appeal, had claimed that City approached Garre when was 15 and then broke transfer rules by signing him shortly after his 16th birthday.

He plays wide and possesses both pace and trickery in abundance. He has represented Argentina at Under-15 and Under-17 level and was even chosen to train with the senior squad during the November worldwide break past year, rubbing shoulders with Lionel Messi.

Velez officials took the Premier League champions and Federation Internationale de Football Association to CAS last summer following the sale of teenager Garre to the Etihad.

Federation Internationale de Football Association bans the transfer of under-18s to different countries unless they meet strict criteria.

The Western states have accused forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad of an attack with the use of chemical weapons in Duma. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs.

Federation Internationale de Football Association ratified the transfer and upheld City's argument that their capture of Garre, who is now playing in City's Under-23 side, was not a breach of the regulations because he holds an Italian passport. City insist they acted within the rules.

Velez, however, claimed that Federation Internationale de Football Association rules only allow players under 18 to move between clubs in Europe and does not include South America. Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid have all been subjected to such bans in recent seasons after being found guilty of breaching the rules surrounding the signing of worldwide players under 18.

Velez took their complaint to Lausanne-based Cas, where the case was heard last summer. A verdict due last September was delayed but now the CAS are prepared to finally deliver their verdict in the next week.
