Barca Set Starlet's Release Clause At €200m

Spanish giants FC Barcelona, who have produced some incredible talents over the years, including Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez, have now reportedly given one of their starlets a release clause of €200 million (R3.2 billion).

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Jordi Alba and Ivan Rakitic's release clauses.

Young holding midfielder Oriol Busquets has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal at the Catalan club, with the option for a further two years.

According to Marca, the club has inserted a buyout clause of €200 million (R3.2 billion) into his contract in a bid to avoid a repeat of what happened with Neymar at the beginning of this past season.

French giants Paris Saint-Germain activated the Brazilian's release clause ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, which saw him leave Spain for France.

Many are surprised by the release clause as it is higher than those in senior squad members Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Jordi Alba and Ivan Rakitic's contracts.

Several La Masia products have put pen to paper on new deals with the Blaugrana, with most of their deals including massive buyout fees.

Busquets, 19, who is of no relation to his namesake Sergio Busquets, has been at the club since 2007, and has made one senior appearance so far.

Do you think giving youngsters these big buyout clauses will save the club from losing quality talents? Let us know in the comments section below.
