Two Players Renew Their Contracts, Club Inserts €500 Million Release Clause

Two Players Renew Their Contracts, Club Inserts €500 Million Release Clause

Barcelona have tied down both Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto to new contracts in the last couple of the days - and they both now have €500 million release clauses in their deals.

The defensive duo have signed on until 2022 in what is great business from Barca, given how important the two youth products are.

Extraordinary high release clauses are common in Spanish football, but interestingly, the €500 million asking fee is more than the clauses for every other Barcelona player, bar a certain Lionel Messi.

Philippe Coutinho immediately had a €400 million release clause placed in his contract upon agreeing his dream move to the Blaugrana, while Ousmane Dembele's is said to be somewhere between €380 million and €400 million.

Messi's gigantic new deal sees him have a mammoth €700 million release clause, which would be the most substantial in world football if it wasn't for Real Madrid having three of their players with a monumental clause of €1 billion - those players being Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Having seen PSG smash the transfer world record when they activated Neymar's £198 million clause in the summer, Barcelona clearly do not want a repeat of the situation and are not messing about.
