The world football governing body, FIFA has been called upon to change its ruling over the transfer of young players rather than issue more sanctions to clubs.

The call was made by the Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu who says he does not want to see Real Madrid punished in the same way as his club over allegations of irregular dealings in the transfer market.

It is on record that Fifa has requested the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) provide details of youngsters signed by Madrid and the collaboration agreements they have with other clubs.

But, Bartomeu has also claimed he does not wish to see Madrid sanctioned in the same way, instead calling upon Fifa to amend their regulations to prevent the problem happening again.

He said, ?Why we got singled out first and not others is a question for Fifa,?

He also explained that the main reason for their ?sanction is Article 19 in the Fifa rulebook, and that the Spanish Football Federation and the Catalan football Federation are also co-responsible in giving them their license.

All throughout the club?s history, he indicated, they have suffered injustices, and this is just another one. I

“It?s clear that there are other clubs involved. [Spanish FA president Angel Maria] Villar already told us that other clubs are implicated…..I don?t want to see other clubs sanctioned, I want that Fifa re-configure their laws and that [Sepp] Blatter gives the matter some reflection.”
