A big relief to Barca for summer transfer Window

FIFA has cleared  Barcelona that they can sign players from July 1 as they suspended the transfer ban they had imposed on them.
The club was banned from registering new players earlier this month by FIFA's disciplinary committee for signing youth players from overseas and violating the designed rules to prevent child trafficking.
The club was found to have violated the rules in the case of 10 under-18 players with a punishment of 14-month transfer ban and a fine of £305,000.
Barcelona lodged a formal appeal last Friday and had urged the game’s governing body to reply as quickly as possible leaving them time to make a second appeal to the Court of Arbitration in Sport (CAS).
But FIFA have made that second appeal unnecessary by temporarily lifting the year-long ban while they review the case.

 In regards of the club's appeal a FIFA statement read: 'The chairman of the FIFA appeal committee considered that the appeal lodged by the club is to be granted suspensive effect.
'The chairman of the FIFA appeal committee, Larry Mussenden, took into consideration the sanctions imposed against the club, the complexity of the matter, the start date of the next registration period - 1 July 2014 - and the fact that the FIFA appeal committee does not seem in a position to take a decision on the main issue early enough so that an eventual appeal of the club against its decision before the Court of Arbitration for Sport would still be decided before the beginning of the next registration period.
Consequently, the chairman considered that the appeal lodged by the club is to be granted suspensive effect."
