BREAKING!! Chelsea banned! Here's their response

Chelsea were banned Friday morning by FIFA from signing new players in the next two transfer windows after breaching rules relating to the registration of players under 18.

Chelsea have been banned from signing new players till two consecutive windows
The ban comes as a cause relating to 29 young players, with the Blues having been accused of committing "several other infringements relating to registration requirements for players".
An official statement released by FIFA reads: "The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned the English club Chelsea FC and The Football Association for breaches relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.
"Chelsea was found to have breached art. 19 of the Regulations in the case of twenty-nine (29) minor players and to have committed several other infringements relating to registration requirements for players. The club also breached art. 18bis of the Regulations in connection with two agreements it concluded concerning minors and which allowed it to influence other clubs in transfer-related matters.
"The Disciplinary Committee sanctioned Chelsea with a ban on registering new players at both national and international level for the next two (2) complete and consecutive registration periods. This ban applies to the club as a whole - with the exception of the women’s and futsal teams - and does not prevent the release of players.
"Additionally, the club was fined CHF 600,000 and given a period of 90 days to regularise the situation of the minor players concerned."
Not long after, Chelsea replied with a response to appeal the situation. 
They have confirmed that they will be appealing their transfer ban, handed to them by FIFA a day after their triumph to the UEFA Europa League round of sixteen after thumping Malmo FF 5-1 on aggregate.

Chelsea 'categorically refutes the findings of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee'

The club have categorically refuted FIFA’s findings, after they were handed a transfer ban lasting two windows.

As it stands, Chelsea will be unable to register any players for the next two windows – this summer and next January.

This would be a massive blow for Chelsea, who are currently trying to rebuild their team under Italian boss Maurizio Sarri.
However, their appeal could stretch out the case beyond the summer. This would mean that Chelsea are able to do any key business in the upcoming window before their ban is officially imposed.

There is, also, a chance that their appeal is successful, which would mean that no transfer ban would be placed upon them.
