English Premier League outfit Chelsea will now breath fresh air as they have been told that their appeal for the transfer ban would be heard by the world football governing body on April 11.
This means that the West London outfit have got a chance to engage in this coming summer transfer window should they succeed in the appeal.
It would be recalled that the West London outfit were handed ban, not to engage in the next two transfer window after they were found guilty of international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.
As soon as the judgment was passed, the Blues’ management in their reaction vowed to appeal the ban and this could be the time for them to be heard by FIFA.
This brings hope that the ban could be listed fully or it could be reduced, depending on their argument and the evidence they have to tender.
It has therefore been hinted that the West London outfit will not give up even if they lose in the appeal as they will proceed to the Court of Arbitration for Sports to make their case.
However, it is suggested that the transfer ban will in many ways determine the fate of the club in next season’s competitions.
