Real Madrid Could face similar transfer ban like rivals Barcelona!!
Real Madrid could face a similar transfer ban to the
one imposed on Barcelona after FIFA started an
investigation into their signing of under age players.
The club presented latest signing Lucas Silva after signing 16-year-old Martin Odegaard last week.
And according to AS, the club are preparing for the
worst after FIFA handed their La Liga rivals Barcelona a
12-month transfer market ban.
The investigation into Madrid’s dealings focusses on
two 12-year-old signed from Venezuela in 2012 and
could put a move for Manchester United’s David De
Gea on hold.
Manuel Godoy and Fernando Macias were snapped up
by Madrid via an intermediary soccer school in the
Madrid have a month to file all relevant paperwork
with FIFA to prove they have not broken the governing
body’s Article 14, which states the signing of Under 18s
from outside the EU can only be made if the player’s
parents move to the country where the club is based
for non-footballing reasons
