With Paris Saint-Germain said to be ready to activate Neymar's whopping €222 million release clause, here are the biggest buyout clauses of FC Barcelona's squad.

Click through the gallery above to see the biggest release clauses in Barca's squad, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Brazilian has a rising buyout clause in his latest contract, which he signed back in October 2016. It was initially set at €191 million (R2.85 billion) and increased to €200 million (R3 billion) when he signed his new deal.

However, at the end of last season, Neymar's buyout clause grew to €222 million (R3.3 billion) – the amount PSG are reportedly prepared to pay. Next season, though, Neymar's price would rise to €250 million (R3.73 billion), as confirmed by FC Barcelona when his latest deal was announced.

Lionel Messi's release clause was raised to €300 million (R4.5 billion) when the Argentine signed his new contract at the beginning of the month.

Meanwhile, Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta and Luis Suarez all had a €200 million (R3 billion) release clause embedded in their latest Barcelona contracts.

Goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen's release clause sits at €180 million (R2.7 billion), while Jordi Alba follows with €150 million (R2.2 billion).

Ivan Rakitic and Arda Turan complete the top 10 with buyout clauses of €125 million (R1.9 billion) in their contracts, while Andre Gomes and Javier Mascherano's release clauses are set at €100 million (R1.5 billion).
