Real Madrid and Atlético have been issued with a transfer ban🚫 by FIFA preventing them from taking on new recruits in the next 2⃣ transfer windows. Precedents dictate they can actually bring in new recruits👍🏻. Barcelona🔷 were slapped with the same ban🚫 for the same reasons, but ended up making signings in the summer of 2014 notwithstanding. The Catalans requested a stay of execution and FIFA granted👍🏻 it. Barca🔷 made the most of the window of opportunity granted them by FIFA to make 8⃣ signings who proved instrumental🙌🏻 to the club's success🏆 at the end of that campaign.
