Real Madrid transfer ban has massive implications for Manchester United

Manchester United fans may not have taken too much interest in the news that Real Madrid have been issued with a transfer ban.

However, when you take into consideration that the Bernabeu club are going to be prevented from registering any players during the next two transfer windows, then the implications for the Red Devils are huge.

The Old Trafford have been linked with summer moves for both former player Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale but Zinedine Zidane’s side are now highly unlikely to sell as they are unable to sign a replacement.

However, it’s not all bad news for United as it means that goalkeeper David de Gea is likely to be staying at the club for a little while longer as Los Blancos won’t be able to pursue him again like they did last summer.

Both Real and their Madrid rivals, Atletico, were found guilty by FIFA for breaching rules regarding the transfer of under 18’s and will both be dealt the same punishment regarding a transfer ban.

However, the ban will not include this existing transfer window, meaning both clubs may look to sign players before it shuts at the end of the month.

The clubs were also issued with minor fines with Atletico having to pay £622,000 and Real a measly £249,000.

The clubs were penalised under the same ruling that Barcelona fell short of and the consequences will be similar. They will be hoping they cope with the transfer embargo as well as the Catalan club did as they won a La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble during their ban.
