Neymar jr has no release clause, but Barcelona reportedly see a possible legal maneuver to break the contract in 2020, whether PSG wants it or not.
According to the legal theory: Next summer, Neymar will have completed what FIFA defines as the “protected period,” which is the first three seasons or first three years, whichever happens first. Once this time is up, if a player has the same contract as when they signed, without having renewed it, FIFA recognizes the right for the player to leave the club, by paying an indemnity.
The cost of that indemnity is calculated with a formula provided by FIFA that looks at what the footballer’s transfer cost, the amortization of the transfer, and other variables. The report says that Neymar’s agents have consulted with FIFA and have been told the cost will be around 170 million.
If Neymar were to ask FIFA to activate this option next year, Barcelona could then pay the fee. [MD]
Jeg ville ønske, at den én gang for alle blev lagt i graven. Hvis det er rigtigt, at klubben og Neymar snart står overfor hinanden i retten, er det jo pløk, at klubben har villet hente ham tilbage. Nu tænker jeg ikke på det sportslige, men på det signal, som det sender.
I øvrigt, kan jeg godt se det dumme i, at jeg ønsker det i graven og selv viderebringer rygter.
