Real Madrid, Atletico hit by one year transfer bans


MADRID: Spanish giants Real Madrid suffered another institutional embarrassment on Thursday as they and rivals Atletico Madrid were banned by FIFA from buying players for one year over their dealing in under-age players. The ban will start from the July transfer window this year and finish with the January transfer market in 2017 meaning newly appointed Real coach Zinedine Zidane will be unable to strengthen his squad this summer.
