Legal eagle assures Barcelona they're in clear over Griezmann FIFA complaint

Barcelona have been assured they'll escape any punishment from FIFA after being reported by Atletico Madrid.

Atletico have lodged a formal complaint after becoming convinced Barca were deliberately unsettling Antoine Griezmann.

Jose Paez, a former FIFA legal adviser, told COPE: "Nobody has ever been sanctioned for a precedent like this, Barça could pay the rescission clause, since by having a clause, it can always be six months after the contract expires.

"There will never be a breach.

"This will not happen."
