Real Madrid's transfer ban reduced by CAS

Real Madrid will be able to go shopping for new talent as of next summer after their transfer ban was reduced by the court of Arbitration for Sport.

The 11-times European champions were barred from signing players for a two transfer windows by world governing body Fifa in January after breaching rules over the transfer of foreign players under the age of 18.

Real, who on Sunday beat Kashima Antlers to lift a second Club World Cup title, have always denied any wrongdoing and took their case to the CAS, which partially upheld their appeal.

The decision means Real will not be able to registering any new players over the winter transfer period in January but will now be eligible to splash the cash in the Summer transfer window in order to bolster their ranks.
