FIFA opt not to sanction Real over Ronaldo

FIFA yesterday announced they will not take any formal action against Real Madrid over Manchester United’s complaint about the Spanish club’s pursuit of Cristiano Ronaldo.

But football’s world governing body has issued a warning to Real of the consequences of inducing the Portuguese winger to breach his contract.

FIFA said in a statement that they had received a complaint from United last week but that no regulations had been broken by the Spanish club so far.

FIFA's statement read: “The Spanish Football Federation has been informed of the complaint lodged by the English club and been asked to remind its member club Real Madrid about the potential legal consequences of a breach of contract without just cause during the protected period, and of a possible inducement to such a breach of contract.”
