The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned English club Manchester City FC for breaches relating to the global transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.

City will be relieved not to receive the same sanction as Chelsea, who were unable to sign any players in the summer window after breaching the same rules.

A Federation Internationale de Football Association statement said that the punishment "took into account the fact that Manchester City FC accepted its responsibility".

However, FIFA's Disciplinary Committee "took into account the fact that Manchester City FC accepted its responsibility", meaning the club was only issued a fine.

"Manchester City FC can confirm that it has today received a reprimand and a CHF 370,000 fine following the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee concerning the global transfer of players under the age of 18, particularly in relation to their trial periods and participation in friendly games", the statement read.

Both players told Danish media that they were signed and had played for the club's youth teams before turning 18, which is against FIFA's legislation.

Manchester City had also vehemently denied reports that the club was facing a ban from the Champions League as the result of the investigation.

Chelsea were given a two-window transfer ban and were "astonished" when FIFA's Appeals Committee refused to suspend the sanction when the Blues appealed against the punishment.

City said the rule breach was in relation to players on trial and their participation in friendly games, and that the club had been "fully compliant" since.

UEFA is focusing on another area and investigating whether City has breached Financial Fair Play rules.

Chelsea disputed the verdict and the ban was upheld by Federation Internationale de Football Association on appeal. The club have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against UEFA's investigation and club chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has said the club will "unquestionably prevail".

The player's parents move to the country in which the new club is located for non-footballing reasons.

They live within 100km of the overseas club.
