BANNED: Chelsea plan CAS appeal after Federation Internationale de Football Association uphold transfer ban


Federation Internationale de Football Association confirmed it has "partially upheld" Chelsea's appeal, but only in allowing the club to sign European players aged under 16.

On Wednesday, the governing body of world soccer announced that its appeal committee had "decided to partially uphold the appeal".

Chelsea refuted FIFA's findings and said that they would appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The club can also ask CAS for an urgent interim ruling within weeks to freeze the ban during the appeal process.

The committee agreed to allow Chelsea to sign players who are under 16 who are not "international transfers or first registrations of foreign minor players".

The ruling will not affect United States global Christian Pulisic.

The USMNT international's transfer was completed in the 2019 January window before he was loaned back to Borussia Dortmund for the remainder of the season.

The Croatia global has spent this season on loan at Stamford Bridge from the La Liga club, while the Blues winger is set to depart the Premier League as he enters the final year of his contract. It's not easy, because the level of the top two is very, very high.

"I think we have to buy only one or two players".

Madrid would want a compulsory purchase clause in the deal so they are guaranteed a fee at the end of Chelsea's ban - if it's upheld.

Chelsea have been holding out for £120m but Madrid are hoping to get him for under £100m. Spanish clubs involved in past cases have been successful in blocking their bans pending a final decision from CAS.

Although everything seemed destined for his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, FIFA's decision has slowed the operation and the scenario is no longer so optimistic for Los Blancos, who already took the signing for granted.

The Catalan club was then able to bring Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, Jeremy Mathieu, Claudio Bravo and Marc-Andre ter Stegen to Camp Nou before the ban was imposed.
