Ziyech will not go to Chelsea, at least for the moment. The leaders of the English club, who were strongly interested in the Moroccan international, will not be able to make this transfer, during the next summer transfer window.
The London club has indeed been sanctioned by FIFA. The Blues were banned from recruiting for the next two mercatos, ie until the end of January 2020, by the Disciplinary Committee of the governing body of world football.
FIFA accuses Chelsea of breaking the rules on international transfers of minor players.
In addition to the ban, the club is also fined 600,000 Swiss francs, just under 530,000 euros, and will regularize the situation of minor players concerned within 90 days, said the body led by Infantino.
Remember that the Lion of the Atlas is coveted by several major European clubs. This growing interest for Ziyech is undoubtedly due to its colorful performances this season in the league and in the Champions League. He is linked to Ajax by a contract until 2021.
