As the old saying goes, ‘Once bitten, Twice Shy’. This old saying can be related to Barcelona decision on setting the release clause for its players. With the new acquisition of player into the squad, Barca has decided to set the release clause so high that even top team may not consider the outright payment of the player.
The new Barcelona signing Frankie de Jong will be the most expensive Dutch footballer. As announced by the Catalan club on its official website, Barca have finalized an agreement for the move of the Dutch player. Barca will pay 75 million euro to Ajax for the player and 11 million euro in variables.
