FIFA has penalised Cristiano Ronaldo’s Saudi Arabian club, Al-Nassr in regards to a dispute over Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa.
The team is no longer allowed to sign any new players until the start of the new Saudi Pro League, according to the world football governing body.
Leicester City is owed money by Al-Nassr for the transfer of Musa, but they have not received it.
In 2018, immediately after making an impression at the World Cup in Russia, Musa agreed to sign with the Saudi Arabian Pro League team in a €16.50 million deal.
Despite the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s (CAS) verdict, the Knights of Naja had already paid the transfer money but not the add-ons.
According to Ben Jacobs, Al-Nassr were ordered to pay the Foxes €460,000 in performance-related add-ons.
However, the Saudi Arabian giants are yet to obey CAS’ ruling, forcing FIFA to ban them from registering new players ahead of the new season.
Al-Nassr were mandated to pay the Foxes €460,000 in performance-related add-ons, according to Ben Jacobs.
