Wenger: Real Madrid's transfer ban will not be enforced

Madrid and Atletico have been banned from registering players for two transfer windows but the Arsenal manager believes the suspension will not be upheld
Arsene Wenger predicts that Real Madrid’s appeal for their transfer ban will be successful.

The Spanish club, along with Atletico Madrid, have been suspended from signing players for the next two windows after breaching rules regarding transfers of players under the age of 18.

Both Madrid and Atletico have denied the claims and insist they will appeal, and the Arsenal manager expects the decision to be overturned.

“They will appeal,” said Wenger.

“They will cancel the ban and they will be allowed to buy in the next two transfer windows. That’s what will happen.”
