Fifa has imposed a year-long transfer ban on Barcelona for breaching its rules on the transfer of players aged under 18. The club’s hopes of signing a successor to their departing goalkeeper Victor Valdés and the teenager dubbed “the new Lionel Messi”, Alen Halilovic, have been hit after they had a year-long transfer ban imposed on them on for breaching Fifa‘s rules on the transfer of players aged under 18.

The 14-month transfer ban raises serious questions about the club’s immediate future, with Fifa
applying the sanction against Barca for signing 10 minor players and
committing “several other concurrent infringements”. They have been
fined £305,000 and if the punishment stands they will not be able to
sign players until the summer of 2015.
The suspension relates to the signings of 10 under-18 players, with the
governing body confirming the ban is to do with “the international
transfer of minors”.

The Catalan club has also been fined £306,000 and has
been instructed by the world governing body “to regularize the situation
of all minor players concerned.”
The Spanish FA has also been handed a 500,000 Swiss francs (£340,000) fine for rule breaches in terms of registering the players.
“FC Barcelona has been found to be in breach of article 19 of the
regulations in the case of 10 minor players and to have committed
several other concurrent infringements in the context of other players,”
a Fifa statement read.
