Atletico Madrid have asked LaLiga to block Antoine Griezmann’s move to Barcelona, in a dispute over the transfer fee between the two clubs, according to the Spanish league’s president, Javier Tebas.
 
Barca announced the signing of Griezmann this month for €120million, but Atletico complained that the Catalan club had not paid enough to trigger the player’s release clause.
 
The buy-out clause dropped from €200m to €120m on July 1.
 
Atletico claim that Griezmann’s May 14 announcement that he was leaving the club, is proof a deal was struck between the player and Barcelona much earlier.
 
“[Atletico] submitted a complaint and put in doubt whether we should pass Griezmann’s licence to Barcelona.

“There’s a process that has been put in motion and those overseeing it will have to come to resolve the case.

“It is possible to block a player’s transfer. LaLiga will have to decide what course of action to take,” Tebas told Spanish radio station Onda Cero on Wednesday.
