Inside less than a month will consummate the Brexit and the United Kingdom will leave to be a state of the European Union. Said situation can have a very important impact in the world of the football, so much in the possible signings of British teams as in European competitions.

One of the norms that would put in force will be that a person of the European Union with a penal conviction will not be able to travel to Great Britain, something that will affect to all the players that sometime have been condemned by fiscal fraud, existing numerous cases.

In definite, somebody convict to prison, although finally it have not fulfilled the conviction, could not go in in the United Kingdom, what includes cases like the ones of Leo Messi (convict to 21 months of prison), Cristiano Ronaldo (23 months), Marcelo (four months) or Diego Coast (declared culprit).

Said of another form, any of said footballers could fichar by a British team. Or, what is graver, will not be able to play any party of the Champions League or the Europe League that it contest in the United Kingdom. Something that will be a problem, as teams like the Liverpool, the Tottenham or the Manchester City always aspire to the title.

The big teams would have in this case a grave problem playing of visitors in Great Britain, as well as the selections that played competitions like the World-wide or the Eurocopas, that could not have some of his international convicts.
