Are there actually any details of what exactly happened? I'm guessing it's a case of tapping up - but that happens all the time.

Unless they had particularly damning evidence..

I've heard nothing until just now, it seems the player broke his contract with Lyon at Chelsea's prompting in 2007. Heard no specifics though.

FIFA say they can appeal.

Chelsea had a suspended sentence hanging over them from when they tapped up Ashley Cole, so I guess Fifa decided on this punishment because of previous convictions.

Various papers are reporting that Man United could be next, after seeming to tap up a Le Havre player called Paul Pogba (no, me either).

Wouldn't make much difference as they can't afford to buy anyone anyway. ¬_¬
