What prevents international-sports "free agency?"

Suppose Spain wanted to build a soccer superteam for the next World Cup cycle and offered multi-hundred-million-euro contracts to Mbappe, Pogba, Modric, Manzukich, Kane, etc. along with "fast-track citizenship." It would certainly be considered extremely tasteless, but would there be anything in FIFA or IOC rules that would expressly ban such tactics?
