A statement from Fifa's reads: "The Chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has today decided to extend the sanctions imposed by the Italian Football Association (FIGC) on the intermediaries Carmine and Vincenzo Raiola to have worldwide effect. Carmine Raiola is suspended for a period of three months and Vincenzo Raiola for a period of two months.
"The decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee was notified today and takes immediate effect."
The ban begins immediately and will end after the English summer transfer window closes.
Raiola boasts a star-studded roster. He represents the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Matthijs de Ligt.
Pogba and De Ligt have been heavily linked with a transfer away from their respective clubs, though the 51-year-old has reassured his ban won't affect any potential business during the summer window.
Manchester United's French midfielder remains subject to intense transfer speculation with Real Madrid reportedly keeping tabs on his development ahead of tabling a mega bid in the summer.
De Ligt, meanwhile, is expected to leave Ajax at the end of the season with the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich interested in snapping him up.
