The Real Madrid Saga – We Stand We Rise! [Video]
Real Madrid suffered another major setback as the club is officially known to have been sanctioned by FIFA for the irregularities in the recruitment of underage players. The main implication of the sanction imposed on both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid is that they cannot sign or register new players in the next two complete transfer windows. Though until 31st January both teams can do it, but from February 1 both will be prohibited in the market for this summer of 2016, and in the winter of 2017. This translates into that if there is nothing new about it, the merengue team cannot register new players in the football section until July 1, 2017. The club president Florentino however has denied all the charges and is all set to appeal in FIFA against the ban.
“Consequently, Real Madrid will appeal this decision by FIFA to all sporting bodies, considering it absolutely unacceptable,” was the crux of Real Madrid’s official site statement after the ban was handed over. However, this sanction has its conditions as well. For example, Real Madrid can win back the players who already have on the payroll, but are transferred. This applies to players like Asensio, Vallejo, Llorente, Lucas Silva or Coentrao. A timely solution that also binds to incorporate homegrown players for the first team, as neither free movement of players from the lower categories is avoided. In addition, the Real Madrid players can sell themselves if desired during the term of the punishment, as made by the FC Barcelona players like Pedro and Xavi. This would allow you to modify your lineup without problems as long as they feel is appropriate to dispense with any of their current players. And you can also change coach again if he sees fit, since the enactment of the new contract does not prevent the restructure of the technical staff.
