Ifølge de to spanske radiostationer Cadena SER og Cadena COPE straffes Real Madrid og Atletico Madrid nu for handel med mindreårige. Som i sagen mod FC Barcelona handler det om, at klubberne har købt spillere under 18 år i strid med artikel 19 i ’FIFA’s Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players’, der bl.a. fortæller, at man ikke må købe spillere under 18 år fra andre kontinenter.

Oplysningerne om den kommende straf skulle angiveligt komme fra det spanske fodboldforbund, der har modtaget et brev om FIFA’s kommende sanktioner mod de to spanske storklubber. Det er ikke lykkes for Sport Executive at få det bekræftes det spanske fodboldforbund. Til gengæld siger en anonym talsmand i FIFA til Sport Executive, helt som vanligt i kommentarer til Sport Executive i de sidste tre år: “Som altid kan vi ikke kommentere på igangværende sager. Vi har ikke flere kommentarer.”
Ifølge de to spanske radiostationer får Real Madrid og Atletico Madrid samme straf som FC Barcelona, nemlig forbud  mod at købe spillere i to transfervinduer, en større pengebøde og 90 dage til at bringe forholdene for de mindreårige i orden.

De to spanske storklubber afviser overfor spanske medier, at de skulle have modtaget besked om sanktioner. Ifølge Sport Executives kilder skulle sanktioner dog være på vej i retning af Madrid. Lige som Valencia og Villarreal er under efterforskning i FIFA.

a) The player’s parents move to the country in which the new club is located for reasons not linked to football.

b) The transfer takes place within the territory of the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) and the player is aged between 16 and 18. In this case, the new club must fulfil the following minimum obligations:

I. It shall provide the player with an adequate football education and/or training in line with the highest national standards.

II. It shall guarantee the player an academic and/or school and/or vocational education and/or training, in addition to his football education and/or training, which will allow the player to pursue a career other than football should he cease playing professional football.

III. It shall make all necessary arrangements to ensure that the player is looked after in the best possible way (optimum living standards with a host family or in club accommodation, appointment of a mentor at the club, etc.).

IV. It shall, on registration of such a player, provide the relevant association with proof that it is complying with the aforementioned obligations.

c) The player lives no further than 50 km from a national border and the club with which the player wishes to be registered in the neighbouring association is also within 50 km of that border. The maximum distance between the player’s domicile and the club’s headquarters shall be 100 km. In such cases, the player must continue to live at home and the two associations concerned must give their explicit consent.
