ZURICH (Reuters) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport has reduced the ban on Real Madrid signing new players to one transfer window from two, the tribunal said on Tuesday.
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.
