The Spanish football association RFEF has imposed a fine of 300 euros on FC Barcelona on Thursday. The Catalan club approached Antoine Griezmann last season without knowing his then club Atlético Madrid.

The 300 euros is a pittance for Barcelona. The club works for the coming season with an annual budget of over 1 billion euros, making it the richest club in the world.

After a huge transfer soap, Barcelona took over Griezmann for 120 million euros from Atlético Madrid last summer. The club from the capital claimed that Barcelona already had a personal agreement with Griezmann before the interest was officially expressed at Atlético. This is contrary to the FIFA regulations.

Atlético demanded that Barcelona pay a transfer fee of 200 million euros, an amount that was laid down as a departure clause in the contract of the French attacker.

"There is only a slight violation of Article 126 in the disciplinary handbook," the RFEF reports in a statement. "No punitive measures are taken against Griezmann."

With three hits in six matches, the 28-year-old Griezmann started the Barcelona season reasonably well, which is in a disappointing fifth place in La Liga.
