The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will review Real Madrid’s appeal against a transfer ban imposed by Fifa for breaking rules regarding the transfer of players under the age of 18 on Wednesday and is expected to reach a decision this month.
The CAS’ secretary general, Matthew Reeb, said on Tuesday that the CAS was “committed to making a decision before the end of the calendar year.”
Real and Atlético bans
Fifa’s disciplinary committee handed down the ban last January 14 against both Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid, which prevents the clubs from signing new players for a period of two transfer windows (January and summer 2017) over irregularities in the club’s processes of contracting youth players.
Both clubs appealed against the decision before Fifa’s appeals committee, which rejected their arguments on September 8.
Real Madrid asked CAS to provisionally suspend the ban so that the club’s youth players affected by the matter could continue to play, which the court agreed to do.
Atlético, meanwhile, did not follow suit but in turn did reach an agreement with CAS to resolve their case before June 2017, with the summer transfer window in mind.
