Highest Buyout Clauses In Football Revealed

By David Kappel - Sep 15, 2017 08:00 PM @kappilinho

Real Madrid’s Isco signed a contract extension on Thursday and reports claim his new deal includes a whopping €700 million buyout clause. Here are the players with the biggest buyout clauses in football.

Click through the gallery to see the highest buyout clauses, as reported by ESPN.

The 25-year-old was one of several high profile stars, who had yet to put pen to paper on a new deal, but Real rectified this oversight this week.

Isco signed a new deal until 2022, as announced by the club on Thursday, while Marca claim his release clause is set on €700 million (R11 billion).

The Spaniard’s new deal includes football’s third-highest release clause, according to a list published by ESPN.

Los Blancos’ superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have the highest buyout clauses in the current game, with both their contracts understood to include a release clause worth €1 billion (R15.8 billion).

Players such as Gareth Bale and Luka Modric follow with €500 million (R7.9 billion) clauses, and overall, nine of the 10 highest release clauses are claimed to be part of contracts of Real Madrid players.

Only one FC Barcelona star is among the suggested 10 highest release clauses in football, with a law in Spain forcing clubs to put buyout clauses in every player’s contract.

Why pay €1 billion for a cow such as Benzema? I would rather pay €350 million and get Asensio.

Lol Madrid are mad although if they wanted to get rid of a player like they should to benzema they'll sell him for less... This is just to ward off any potentials

I never get the point of these cray release clauses...Just say"Not for sale unless major fallout with the club or long term unsatisfying performance"No club will pay that obviously but that doesn't mean the player will stay at the club for the full length no matter the circumstances
