FIFA is changing its transfer rules, which will affect Tottenham, Chelsea, and Arsenal in the January transfer window.

FIFA is about to be compelled to renounce their promise to cap agency payments from transfers they assist in securing. This is because UK football agencies recently prevailed in a court battle with the football association, which led to another abrupt change in the law.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino stated during a news conference that the organization intends to impose a cap for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. “This represents a historic step towards the establishment of a fairer and more transparent football transfer system,” a statement from the statement later said.

“The new regulations introduce basic service standards for football agents and their clients, all with the objective of reinforcing contractual stability, protecting the integrity of the transfer system and achieving greater financial transparency.” This was met with some disapproval from impacted agency groups.

Just earlier this year, a Dortmund court ruled in favour of German agency groups, stating that they won’t have to follow the same guidelines set out by FIFA. There were claims of “anti-competitive” measures put in place, leading to a landmark case in overturning the ruling.

Representatives of some of the greatest names in international football joined together with UK agencies to form their own legal charge. Following Mino Raiola’s tragic death, Rafaela Pimenta, the heir to his throne, and CAA Stellar founder Jonathan Barnett jointly made a claim.

The court decided in favor of the two over FIFA, which is a major win for them and the other agencies that are active in the UK. It will result in a significant overturning of the cap imposed by the governing body and will probably have a significant effect on the financial packages associated with transfers in the future.
