Griezmann transfer dispute: FC Barcelona sentenced to pay 300 euros


That's going to hit FC Barcelona hard: the Spanish side have made a decision in the dispute over the transfer of striker Antoine Griezmann from Atlético Madrid to Barcelona. It was pretty mild.

The FC Barcelona is in the transfer dispute with league rivals Atlético Madrid to football world champion Antoine Griezmann almost unpunished. The Spanish Football Federation RFEF imposed a mini penalty of only € 300 against the reigning champion after Atlético had protested against the transfer.

Both clubs had done a week-long hiccup. Griezmann was finally transferred to Barça in July for 120 million euros. Atlético, however, demanded a € 80 million look-ahead, as it was "evident" that the agreement between the player and FC Barcelona was closed before the exit clause was lowered from € 200 million to € 120 million, "it said.

According to the association, the allegation could not be proven, Barça had not allowed a grosser violation of the rules, it said. Atlético had expected a much tougher punishment. In the run-up to the judgment, there had been talk of a stadium ban or a very high fine for the Catalans.
