Barcelona to Appeal €300 Griezmann Fine.

Barcelona are set to appeal a €300 fine over their approach for Antoine Griezmann, confirmed coach Ernesto Valverde.The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) announced on Thursday Barca had been found guilty of violating article 126 of its disciplinary code during their pursuit of the France forward while he was at Atletico Madrid.Barca signed Griezmann in July for €120million but Atletico claimed they were owed a further €80m, alleging an agreement between the player and the La Liga champions being reached before his release clause dropped from €200m.A symbolic monetary penalty was imposed by the RFEF, while Griezmann escaped without sanction. However, Barca are appealing against the fine.”I don’t know the exact ins and outs of this question or how it stands legally,” Valverde told a news conference. “I understand the club is appealing.”
