Lausanne, Switzerland-based CAS also ordered Real Madrid to pay a fine to global soccer body FIFA of 240,000 Swiss francs ($233,120), reduced from 360,000 francs.

The suspensions were initially imposed by FIFA’s disciplinary committee in January for breaching rules on signing non-Spanish under-18 players.
