Real, Atletico Madrid Transfer Bans Temporarily Lifted

FIFA has temporarily suspended the transfer bans imposed two weeks ago on Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid while world football’s governing body investigates the club appeals regarding the signing of youth players.

The FIFA appeals committee informed the clubs of the news on Friday. Atletico Madrid communicated the news to supporters via Twitter, while Real Madrid later released a one-line statement on their website.
Real Madrid’s statement read: “Real Madrid would like to communicate that the FIFA appeals committee has decided to temporarily suspend the sanctions imposed on the club.”

The Spanish clubs were notified earlier this month by FIFA that they had been banned from registering new players for the next two transfer windows after FIFA ruled that both clubs violated regulations against signing young international players.

Both clubs can now sign players while FIFA makes a determination on the appeal. The clubs had not been banned from signing players during this current transfer window, but the original sanction applied for the 2016 summer transfer window and the 2017 winter window.

Should FIFA not make a decision on the appeal by the beginning of this summer, both clubs would be eligible to sign players during the 2016 summer window. But should FIFA ultimately find that both clubs did violate the regulations against signing young international players, both could be dealt transfer bans for the duration of two windows. Press Association Sport reported that the appeals will be heard before the summer.
