The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) should take into account that some FIFA rules relating to player transfers may be in breach of Community law, and on Tuesday recommended the institution's Advocate General.

The subject of the case, according to a press release from the European Court of Justice, is the obligation of the new club, together with the player, to eventually compensate the former club in the event of a dispute over the termination, which the Advocate General considers may be in breach. to EU rules on competition as well as the free movement of people.

The lawyer points out that FIFA regulations restrict freedom of movement on the one hand, and affect competition between clubs on the other hand, by limiting the clubs’ ability to recruit players.

The origin of the case in which the European Court of Justice was called to rule is a challenge by a professional player to contractual rules between clubs and footballers, in the specific case of unfair termination of a contract.

The player, who left the Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow, claims that it is difficult to find a new club due to the demand for compensation for his departure, and in turn is demanding that the wages due be paid.

The Public Defender's recommendation is not binding on the court, but is followed most of the time.
