Pedri signs deal with 1bn release clause

Just seen this on the BBC. What is he thinking? I mean, but all means, sign a new deal. But Barca aren't in a great position at the moment. They are in loads of debt, the stadium needs work and so does the squad. Seems kind of cray to me to agree to such a release clause when there is no guarantee that they will be challenging anytime soon.

Not sure people understand what a release clause is? It's a set amount that if put up means the selling club (in this case Barca) has no option but to allow their player to negotiate with the buying club.

Barca could still sell Pedro for 20 quid of they had to or wanted to

Err....what? I've no idea what point you are trying to make.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think he means that the release clause is a force majeure if met, but not the fixed price in a negotiated transfer.

Oh well, thank feck he cleared that up. Here we all were thinking that Barca could only sell Pedri for 1bn euros.

I think some people do believe that's the case. Why else would they be to shocked at silly figures like 1b euros etc. In Spain release clauses are mandatory and in certain circumstances they just set an arbitrary amount which lets them set their real asking price at the time the player is potentially moving (be it 2m or 200m). By setting an incredibly high one you essentially tick the box while at the same time keeping as much power as an English club would have over their players

Weirdly, some people seem to not understand this...

Don’t see how this is a bad thing for Pedri.

Worst case scenario things don’t improve at Barca and his current deal expires when he’s only 23.

I don't know anyone who doesn't understand how a release clause works. I just think that in this case, if I were Pedri I'd not be agreeing to such a high figure. Barca are in £1bn worth of debt. They have to agree a release fee with Pedri, so why would you let it be so high when they are in such a tough position at the moment? A lot can happen in 5 years and Barca could struggle to compete at the top level for some time whilst they try to get the club back on an even keel. I'd have been looking for a more realistic release fee myself given the current state of the club.

Yes but it's like saying why would any young player sign a new contract with any club without a release clause. Why would Saka sign with Arsenal, Greenwood with United etc when Man City, Chelsea or Liverpool are in a far better position to challenge.

It's no different to signing a contract without a release clause which most players do outside of Spain. Like you said,

As you mentioned, Barca are in financial trouble. So in reality he's in fact more likely to get a move away should he want to be sold later down the line because the club needs cash more than ever.
