The Depay mega-clause

Although Barça did not make the termination clause official in the statement of the signing of the Dutchman, it has been protected with a high starting price: € 400M.


As Barça sources confirmed to AS, Memphis Depay will have a termination clause of 400 million euros. Thus, there is shielding for the Dutch forward, a matter that had remained in a kind of nebula last Saturday, when the Barça club announced the signing of the former Olympique Lyonnais player, but did not specify what the clause was, a figure that usually occur in almost all cases.

Depay, chosen in the ideal eleven of the first phase of the European Championship by UEFA although colleagues like Wijnaldum himself ask for even a little more, has signed a two-season contract, one less than what was agreed at the beginning. Barça has raised the emoluments initially agreed upon under pressure from Juventus and Inter and the player has kept the letter of, still 27 years old, signing another great contract before the age of thirty.

Depay has made that decision, among other reasons, because he knows that Koeman's future at Barça is not clear in the medium and long term and that he may be a less strategic player in another project. For this reason, it wants to have a situation of a certain advantage from the summer of 2022. Of course, Barça does not want surprises next summer and has been protected with a very high armor by a player who appears to be in the best moment of his career, mature and with many records in the game.
