MADRID: Atletico Madrid lodged an appeal on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) against a one-year transfer ban imposed by FIFA over their dealing in under-age players. The ban starts from the July transfer window this year and finishes with the January transfer market in 2017. Real Madrid were hit with the same punishment. Atletico were also fined 900,000 Swiss francs (820,000 euros) and Real 360,000 (330,000 euros). However, both clubs are still allowed to sign players until the end of the month.
