Spanish club Las Palmas believe they are entitled to €4 million as part of Vitolo’s exit from La Liga rivals Sevilla.
It was from Las Palmas that the Spain international first joined los Rojiblancos, with his previous employers entitled to 12.5% of the next transfer fee.
And as Vitolo rescinded his contract with Sevilla by paying the €35.7 million release clause, La UD believe they are entitled to €4 million and have now launched legal proceedings against their league rivals.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, believe they should not be paying anything as they did not officially sell the winger, although it is clear that the 27-year-old will be joining Atletico Madrid in January.
Vitolo spent last four years at Sevilla, bagging 18 goals in 125 La Liga appearances, while also breaking into the national team set-up.
