The 'Neymar effect' bleeds Barcelona dry

After Neymar's shocking departure, and associated inflated transfer fees, the last thing Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu wanted was another surprising exit from Lionel Messi.At least now the president is finally able to breathe easily knowing his No.10 has signed a contract renewal.The story went as follows... m88bet Both parties reached an initial agreement in early June but it was not made official until the beginning of July.However, things were not exactly as they had been described because not only was the formal act of the signing missing, but a new contract had to be drafted.The Argentine's renewal deal was until 2021 with a release clause of 300 million euros, but due to scheduling problems the agreement wasn't signed. First, Messi was out of the country; then his wedding came, and later he went on vacation.Everything indicated that it would finally be sorted once he returned to training, but that did not occur either.The reason? Neymar's departure to Paris Saint-Germain.Barcelona waited for the French club to pay the Brazilian's release clause and began to panic once PSG actually deposited 222 million into their accounts. If a club was willing to spend that much money on the Brazilian, a release clause of only 300m for Barcelona's star player was far too low.They didn't want to take the risk of losing their talisman so they called up the player's father to ask for an increase in his buyout clause.The Neymar effect was already causing problems. For example, Ousmane Dembele's transfer fee went through the roof. m88bet A footballer who was priced at 90m at the beginning of the summer eventually made the move to Catalonia for 130m. The price of other targets also increased dramatically. New contractDembele's release clause was set at 400m, which was 100m more than the one agreed with Messi. It was a clear miscalculation by the club officials.This is what led to Messi's release clause increasing to 700m euros, and a contract that included a new improvement in the footballer's salary.The two parties negotiated in silence. Still, the club said that everything had been arranged and that the contract was binding because they had the signature of the player's father. However, that was incorrect because for the contract to have absolute validity it needed to be signed by the player.And the reality is that it was necessary to throw out the June contract and write a new one. The agreement came last week, just one month before arguably the best player in history could freely negotiate with any club. m88bet
