Griezmann reacts to Atletico's court complaint over his transfer to Barca
- Griezmann has reacted to the news of RFEF opening the investigation against him and Barca.
- The case concerns the alleged irregularities of his move to Barcelona.
- The forward sais that he is 'relaxed' over these proceedings.
- Antoine claims that he has given his everything to Atleti and thus doesn't have to worry.
"I've heard something about it but it's not something I want to dwell on," Griezmann said as quoted by Diario AS. "I gave everything I had at Atlético - it was my home for many years. I'm relaxed about it."
It's interesting to know that the Frenchman is relaxed, considering the fact that the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have already opened the case against him and the Catalans over Atleti's complaint. The investigation is expected to last for 40-50 days, the Catalan giants are accused of failing to comply with RFEF General Regulations.
As a reminder, the Rojiblancos accuse the Catalans of agreeing on the deal in March when the player's release clause was still set at €200 million as it only dropped to €120 million on July 1.
Barca president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, however, denies these allegations, claiming that the club have only contacted Griezmann in May.
"I've spoken to Atletico. I understand they're defending their interests," he said (h/t ESPN FC). "I don't see how this can have a positive outcome for them. We contacted Griezmann at the end of May."
