Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid Given Two- Window Transfer Ban

real/athletico madrid

Fifa has banned Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid from registering new signings for the next two transfer windows as punishment for breaching its rules on the international transfer and registration of players aged under 18.

The ban does not affect the current window and does not prevent players leaving either club but means after this month neither Real nor Atlético will be able to register any new players until the summer of 2017.

Atlético have also been hit with a 900,000 Swiss francs fine (£622,000) while Real have been fined 360,000 Swiss francs (£249,000).
