£635.4m – Luka Modric, Brahim Diaz
Fair play, Luka Modric is the only player who’s been able to break the Messi-Ronaldo stronghold on the Ballon d’Or, so he’s probably worthy of a big release clause.
We’re not sure about Manchester City reject Brahim Diaz, though…
£677.8m – Antoine Griezmann
A big-money signing for Barcelona this summer, Antoine Griezmann is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world, so a high buy-out clause makes sense for the Frenchman.
To think Manchester United could’ve signed him for just £100m a few years ago…
£847.2m – Karim Benzema
A surprise name in first place – Karim Benzema. The Frenchman continues to play a key role for Real Madrid, but we’re not sure this hefty buy-out clause really reflects his standing in world football.
