Real, and local rivals Atletico Madrid, were slapped with the sanction of not being able to register new players for the 12 months between July 2016 and 2017 for alleged irregularities in the signing of foreign nationals under 18.

Elyaz, 10, Theo, 13 and Luca, 17, were all left out, whilst Enzo, 20, was only introduced as a substitute for Real Madrid Castilla — the side Zidane had coached for 18 months before taking over the senior side earlier this month.
