Real Madrid transfer ban reduced

Real Madrid have had their transfer ban reduced to one transfer window  after their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas)

Real Madrid had been barred from signing players for two transfer windows originally. They  will be banned from signing new players this January but will now be able to to participate in the transfer window next summer.

Both Real and  Atletico Madrid were banned after breaching rules over the transfer of foreign players under the age of 18.

A statement on their official website reads: “The decision highlights the injustice of the original ban imposed by Fifa, although the club regrets that the Cas lacked the courage to revoke the ruling entirely.”
