Man City might be next team found ‘stealing’ French League youngsters!

Manchester_City_1_Rennes has reported to FIFA that Manchester City might have acquired former Rennes youngster Jeremy Helan the same way that Chelsea acquired French youngster Gael Kakuta.

Rennes states that Helan broke his contract with the team in order to join Manchester City this summer. City claim that they have done nothing wrong and that Helan’s contract with Rennes is currently being battled in French court over the validity of that contract. They also question the timing of the inquiry, since it is only a few days since the Chelsea decision.

Manchester City released a statement, which said the following:  “Manchester City is aware of the ongoing contractual dispute in the French Labour Courts between Jeremy Helan and Stade Rennais. The dispute between the player and the Club pre-dates any interest from Manchester City.

“Manchester City obviously cannot comment on the case until the French Judicial Process has run its course. However we are comfortable that we have acted within the rules throughout the process and in no way induced any breach of contract by Jeremy Helan.”

We will continue to follow the progress of this report and will update you with more information.
