Atletico Madrid report Barcelona to FIFA over Griezmann attempts

Atletico Madrid have reported Barcelona to FIFA for speaking to Antoine Griezmann without their permission.

Marca reports Atletico have presented a formal complaint to FIFA for the continued pursuit of their player.

The Frenchman renewed with the Rojiblancos in June until 2022, and one of the factors that Atleti will put in its complaint is the integrity of the domestic competition being at stake.

Though Barcelona are top of the LaLiga table and Atletico sit second and just six points behind, the Madrid club have come to the conclusion that the contact with their star player seems to be a clear ploy to destabilise their own efforts to get closer to the Catalans in the table.
