Barcelona and Atletico both to appeal against Spanish FA’s decision

Atletico Madrid made a complaint against Barcelona for tapping up Antione Griezmann, by agreeing his transfer to Camp Nou before talking to the club, as well as before his release clause dropped from €200 million to €120 million.

The Spanish FA’s competition committee was called upon for ruling and they decided to fine the Catalan club €300. Their decision seems to have left both sides disappointed, with Atletico expecting a heavier punishment and possibly a compensation in the form of the €80 million they feel they are due.

On the other hand, Barcelona feel they’ve done nothing wrong and aren’t happy with being fined at all, despite the nature of the fine which seems like a “drop of water in an ocean” for a professional club in any league in Europe, let alone a giant such as Barcelona.

Therefore, according to Marca, both clubs will appeal against the decision; Atletico to demand stronger action against the La Liga champions, and Barcelona seeking total vindication.
