No FIFA Investigation Against United
FIFA confirmed that they had not started an investigation against Manchester United in the case of Michele Fornasier, the 16-year-old starlet signed from Fiorentina, taking advantage of the rule preventing Italian clubs from tying down under-17 players to a professional contract.
'We can confirm that we were contacted by Fiorentina with regard to the potential transfer of the player, Michele Fornasier, to Manchester United,' a FIFA spokesman told the Telegraph.
'However, no formal investigation has been opened since the documentation currently in our possession, from a purely formal point of view, is not apt to sustain such action.'
They also added that Le Havre, the former club of Paul Pogba, haven't made any formal complaint yet - they were just mouthing off in the press. The French Football Federation is still holding back Pogba's international transfer certificate, though: in that case, there is an investigation going on, requested by Manchester United. Hopefully they'll resolve it soon.
