Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) has reduced the ban on signing players to one transfer window for spanish giants Real Madrid. The decision followed the appeal filed by the club.
The Spanish side was originally barred from signing players for two windows by world governing body FIFA.
They remain banned from registering new players this January but will now be able to make signings next summer.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport also reduced the club’s fine from three hundred and sixty thousand Swiss francs to Two hundred and forty thousand Swiss francs.
Both Real and fellow Spanish side Atletico Madrid were banned after breaching rules over the transfer of foreign players under the age of eighteen.
In a statement on their official website, Real Madrid who reacted swiftly on their official website applauded the decision by Cas saying FIFA’s earlier decision was an injustice and regrets the fact that Cas lacked the courage to revoke entirely ruling.
