Barcelona and Real Madrid are responsible for the 12 biggest release clauses in football worth over £8BILLIONJanuary 26, 2022
LALIGA giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are responsible for the 12 BIGGEST release clauses in world football.
The Spanish heavyweights have a dozen players with buyout clauses of over £420MILLION on their books.
That takes the combined total to over £8BILLION.
New Barca signing Ferran Torres is the latest star to have a mega clause inserted into his contract.
The Spain striker moved from Manchester City in a £55m deal earlier this month.
And Barca promptly inserted a buy-out clause of €1b (£847m) into his new deal at the Nou Camp.
That puts him on a par with the likes of Real talisman Karim Benzema and Barca wonderkid Pedri at the top of the expenses sheet.
Fellow LaLiga new boy David Alaba follows them on the buy-out charts.

Barca look set to add further digits to the totaliser if they can tie down wonderkid Gavi to a new deal.
The 17-year-old has been tipped to sign a huge new contract with the Catalans, including a €1b release clause of his own.
