According to the competition’s president Javier Tebas, there is a possibility Antoine Griezmann’s transfer to Barcelona will be blocked.

The transfer of French footballer Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona is very controversial.

According to Los Colchoneros, the Blaugrana were disrespectful by talking to their player in the middle of the 2019-2020 Spanish La Liga season.

They were so angry that when Barca announced his signing, they branded both club and player as disrespectful.

And Atletico has been trying to find a legal way to stop the transfer.

“Antoine Griezmann, represented by his lawyer, has appeared at the headquarters of the Professional Football League to unilaterally terminate the contract linking the player with Atlético Madrid,” they wrote in a press release according to talkSPORT.

“With Fútbol Club Barcelona having deposited the sum of €120million euros in the name and on behalf of the footballer.”

But the argument does not end there, Atleti claims Barcelona still owes them €80 million.

And they have contacted La Liga.

“It is possible to block a player’s transfer,” LaLiga president Javier Tebas was quoted saying.

“La Liga will have to decide what course of action to take.”

“[Atletico] submitted a complaint and put in doubt whether we should pass Griezmann’s license to Barcelona,” he added.

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