Barcelona Were Fined €300 For Completing Griezmann’s Signing In July!

Barcelona would complete the signing of Antoine Griezmann in July from Atletico Madrid.

Barca are reported to have paid for the Frenchman.

However, Atletico were not happy with €107.7 million, the transfer sum.

The club previously released a statement, claiming that the amount Barca deposited for Griezmann was insufficient:

“The amount deposited is insufficient to pay his release clause because it is obvious that the agreement between the club and Barcelona was done before his fee dropped from €200 to €120 million.” As quoted by AS.

Spain’s disciplinary committee would eventually try to resolve the issue on Thursday the 26th of September.

It was ruled that instead of Barcelona having their stadium closed for one game, they would pay a fine of €300, as Spanish outlet AS, who ran the headline Barcelona fined 300 euro over Griezmann ‘tapping up’, wrote:
