Barca's transfer ban temporarily lifted

Barcelona will be able to buy and sell players this summer after their transfer ban was temporarily suspended for the duration of the club’s appeal.

The Spanish champions were initially banned for two transfer windows and fined 370 thousand euros for breaching FIFA’s rules on signing foreign players under the age of 18.

The FIFA have accused Barca of registering and fielding several players aged under 18 between 2009 and 2013.

Barca appealed the decision earlier this month prompting FIFA to suspend the punishment due to the unlikelihood that the appeal would be concluded before the opening of the transfer window on 1 July.
