ZURICH (AP) – Chelsea's lawyers at FIFA's headquarters office, which challenge the club's one-year mobilization ban, break down youth movement rules, decide next week.
FIFA says that the appeal committee hears the case on Thursday.
Whatever the decision, each side can make a further appeal at its Sport Arrangement for Sport.
The matter should be resolved before the international window opens for movement on 1 July.
If Chelsea is banned, he could still sell performers – including Real Madrid aimed at Eden Hazard – but would be banned from getting new to the 2020-21 season.
The FIFA control committee found that Chelsea was guilty in February of 29 breaches of movement rules that were designed to protect thousands of players from trafficking. The club was fined 600,000 Swiss francs ($ 600,000).
