How much a club is willing to sell their player for is obviously a good barometer to decide how important they are. Luckily in Spain they have transfer release clauses that take all the guesswork out of it. For that end Valencia really like Ferran Torres.
We've all known about the transfer release clauses in players' contracts in Spain for ages and they often come up when a team is linked with one of La Liga's finest.
Those release clauses though have been sprung into the spotlight ever since PSG made Neymar's seemingly ridiculous £198 million clause look like it was just the change you'd find down the back of the sofa.
Now everyone's got their eyes on release clauses with Barcelona reportedly ready to activate the one on Antoine Griezmann's contract in the summer, for roughly £98 million.
Obviously a stupidly high release clause will still put sides off signing a player which is why Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are likely safe where they are and that's now the case for teenager Ferran Torres.
The Valencia youngster impressed in the under 17s World Cup and had been linked with a move to the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea as well as La Liga's two superclubs. But now there's seemingly no chance of that with the 18 year old signing a new contract:
Ferran Torres signs a new deal with Valencia. Clause is a quite staggering €100m. He's just 18... https://t.co/R9oNadAok1- David Cartlidge (@davidjaca) April 3, 2018
Anthony Martial's move from Monaco to Manchester United for £36 million is currently the record transfer fee for a teenager but now if anyone tried to sign Torres they'd have to more than double it.
In a statement the club confirmed he'd signed on till 2021 saying, "The president of Valencia CF, Anil Murthy, and Ferran Torres have sealed on Tuesday the new contract by which the international Sub 19 becomes linked to his club of all life for four seasons - the present and the next three - until June 2021. The new termination clause of the player, 18 years old and a native of Foios, becomes set at 100 millions of euros."
That's a lot of money for such a young player.
