Real & Atletico Rebut Investigation Claims


Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have strongly refuted suggestions they are under investigation by FIFA over the transfer of players aged under 18.

Reports in the Spanish media on Tuesday claimed the two Primera Division clubs are being probed by football’s world governing body and could face transfer bans.

“We have not received any notification by FIFA or by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) regarding the reports that are circulating in the Spanish media,” Atletico press officer Juan Jose Anaut told Press Association Sport.

“We want to state that we have co-operated with FIFA at all times.

“We believe we have followed the correct steps when it comes to licencing under-age players as we have followed the guidelines of the RFEF and the Madrid Football Federation just as FIFA stipulates in order for licences to be approved.”
