FIFA Bans Barcelona From Signing Players for the Next 2 Transfer Windows
FIFA has banned Barcelona from signing any players for the next two transfer windows because of rule violations.
FIFA's disciplinary committee found the Spanish champion breached the rules 'relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18'.
World football's governing body also fined Barcelona $509,000 and gave the club 90 days 'to regularise the situation of all minor players concerned'.
