Juve fined by FIFA for illegal clause inserted into Benatia sale

Medhi Benatia departed Juventus in January 2019, but news has emerged today that the Bianconeri were fined last year for an illegal clause they inserted into the deal that saw the Moroccan sold to Al-Duhail.

As reported by calciomercato.com, in September 2019, Andrea Agnelli’s side was fined 40,000 Swiss francs by FIFA for putting a prohibited clause in the contract for the sale of Benatia to the Qatari side.

The Arab side would have had to pay a penalty of €5 million in the event that they sold Benatia to any one of the following clubs: Napoli, Milan, Inter, Rome, Lazio and French side PSG.
