FIFA imposes 14-month transfer ban on Barcelona

PanARMENIAN.Net - Spanish champions Barcelona have been given a 14-month transfer ban by FIFA for breaking rules on signing international players under 18, BBC Sport reports.

The Catalan club cannot buy or sell players until the summer of 2015 after the world governing body imposed a transfer ban for the next two windows.

They have also been fined 450,000 Swiss Francs.

FIFA has also sanctioned the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for the same breaches.

The RFEF has been given a fine of 500,000 Swiss Francs and told to "regularize [its] regulatory framework and existing system concerning the international transfer of minors in football" within a year.
