Since the Neymar's case, FC Barcelona has reacted in the market: Trincao and Matheus have arrived with high clauses, a trend that has remained throughout the workforce
In the transfer market within the world of football, speculation has caused an impressive inflation of prices paid for player transfers. This increase in the value of the players has increased dramatically in recent months, reaching real barbarities for cracks.
Soccer teams have more and more economic potential, either because they are chaired by multi-million dollar sheikhs or simply because the soccer business generates more and more income. Therefore, it is increasingly common to see millionaire payments for some of the stars, something in which LaLiga Santander has a great disadvantage.
The contracts of the players who play in the First Division teams of the Spanish championship have a system based on the termination clauses. That is, if a team pays the release figure of a player and reaches an agreement with him, unlike what he does in other countries, this player is automatically released from his contract.
FC Barcelona has already experienced it with Neymar and, as he does not want it to be repeated, during the last two seasons the Catalan club has renewed eight of its players by increasing the clauses and the contract years. In addition, the trend of the club culé when closing signings, is based on the same principle: sign contracts with high clauses to avoid surprises in the future.
Something that has been demonstrated again this January with the signings of Francisco Trincao and Matheus Fernandes, two players who will not join the first Barça squad until next summer but have already been officially announced as Culés signings. Both have signed until 2025: the Portuguese with 500 million clause and the Brazilian with 300.
Next, we collect the updated dates for the termination of the Barça staff contracts and their corresponding termination clauses, with data that in some of the cases could be altered in the coming months if there are renewals such as the one that Ansu signed a few months ago Fati, in which Barça stopped him to stop a possible 'escape'.
