Real Madrid Transfer Ban Reduced

December 21, 2016

Champions League champions Real Madrid have had their transfer ban reduced to one transfer window, after making a successful appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)

The Spanish capital club, who won the World Club Championship last sunday, had initially been banned from registering new players for two transfer windows – however, CAS has reduced this penalty, as well as cutting Real’s £282,000 fine by a third to £188,000.

Both Real and fellow Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid were initially banned from signing new players for two transfer windows, after breaching rules on the signings of Under-18 players.
