GET INVOLVED

Ben Bica: "Real Madrid weren't wanting anyone this transfer window anyways. Probably not for the summer either. The team have potential players and most of the best players in the world."

Talent G: "Nice timing. Barca get notified of the ban after the transfer window was closed and Real Madrid are notified in the middle of it - but are however still allowed to buy players. Madrid will appeal, just as Barcelona did which will allow them to buy players during the summer as well. You watch."
