Barcelona reportedly planning to appeal over the €300 fine placed on the club by the RSFF over Antoine Griezmann transfer saga.

Earlier today, it was reported that Barcelona would have to pay a fine of €300 due to alleged foul play in signing former Atletico Madrid player, Griezmann.

The Catalans have also recently been reported to be planning an appeal on the allegations and fine levied on them.

Being a club worth millions of euros, Barcelona can just pay the fine and get past the headache but the La Liga champions decide to appeal.

It’s clear that the Blaugrana are appealing not cause of the fine involved but for the sake of their name and dignity in such a tricky case.
