Real Madrid superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have the highest buyout clauses in the game, with both their contracts understood to include a release clause of £886 million (R14.8 billion).

FC Barcelona maestro Lionel Messi is third with a buyout clause apparently set at £626 million (R10.5 billion), which is surprisingly quite a bit less than the two players tied for first.

Fourth and fifth place is taken up by two Los Blancos players, attacking midfielders Isco and Marco Asensio. The pair is tipped for a bright future at the Santiago Bernabeu, and both have release clauses of £620 million (R10.4 billion).

Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Dani Ceballos jointly take up the next four spots, with their release clauses set at £443 million (R7.44 billion).
