Real Madrid is set to receive a two-season transfer ban after FIFA has found irregularities in the signing of young players, according to Catalan sports paper Mundo Deportivo.
FIFA is yet to announce the sanction, but it is confirmed that the governing body will be giving Real Madrid a similar style of punishment slapped upon FC Barcelona.
As happened with Barcelona, Real Madrid will restricted from registering new players for the next two transfer windows. Yet, president Florentino Perez could make signings, but would not be able to register the signings for competitive tournaments.
It is also important to notice that one transfer window is considered as a transfer season and the duration of the punishment begins from when the sanction is imposed.
If they are imposed with the ban from the current winter transfer window that begins from January 2016, then Madrid won’t be able to register new players until the end of Summer transfer window of 2016. Similarly, if it starts from summer of 2016, then the restrictions will last until the end of January 2017.
A sources close to Santiago Bernabeu insists that there are no contacts from FIFA lately on the matter and if required they are in a strong position to clarify reports on a wrong doings.
