Atletico Madrid report La Liga rivals Barcelona to FIFA over alleged Antoine Griezmann approach

Posted: 20 December 2017 Time: 17:15

Atletico Madrid have issued a complaint to FIFA over an alleged approach from Barcelona to striker Antoine Griezmann.

The France international has been strongly linked with a switch to the Nou Camp, despite having signed a new four-year deal with Atletico in June, which is set to keep him with the club until 2022.

As such, the Madrid giants have taken issue with Barca reportedly making contact with those close to the player and have reported the incident to FIFA.

A FIFA spokesman said: "We can confirm that we have received a complaint from Atletico de Madrid."

Barca, though, deny the claims and a club spokesman told Spanish paper Marca: "Barcelona have not negotiated with any player, so we understand that no irregularity has been committed."
