Neymar looks set to go to Paris Saint Germain this summer, with the mega-rich Ligue 1 club willing to pay his huge buyout clause, and it seems that every player is available for a price, even Lionel Messi.
Barcelona have some of the best players in the world, and are arguably one of the best clubs, yet it seems for the right amount and when a player is unhappy for whatever reason at their current club, you can land pretty much anyone. Or so it would seem.
With that in mind, the Mirror posted all the release clauses for the top Barcelona players – and some of them are eye-watering amounts.
Oh, and some are down right crazy – Vermaelen’s for instance is insane considering how little he’s played for the club and how far his stock has fallen.
The clause for Messi is obviously the largest, and it seems that the player is happy at Barcelona and does not want to go anywhere, although the fact Neymar also seemed happy and has a long term contract means anything is possible in football.
The likes Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta are clearly not leaving the Cules, but they have massive release clauses all the same, if only to protect Barcelona and make the players feel valued and wanted.
