Chelsea have lost the appeal against the two-window transfer ban that has been imposed on them by FIFA, according to multiple sources.
BREAKING: @ChelseaFC have lost their appeal against FIFA's decision to ban them from signing players in the next two transfer windows.

The London club have been slapped with a ban preventing them from signing new players for the next two transfer windows for rule-breaking in terms of signing young players. The world football governing body has upheld its initial decision, as expected, and should Chelsea still wish to contest their verdict, they will now have to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
FIFA did, however, allow them to continue signing players under 16 years of age.
Chelsea have secured Champions League football following the failures of Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester United last weekend, but they are set go through the summer, as well as January next year, without a single first-team signing. If the ban goes through, they will be extremely glad they secured the services of Christian Pulisic early in the year, especially in light of Real Madrid’s strong interest in Eden Hazard.
