You know who needs a €100 million release clause?
Barcelona signed Mascherano to a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2018. It also has a €100 million release clause.
Nothing says €100 million like a midfielder playing center back. Nothing says €100 million like desperately trying to buy a couple center backs because you don't quite cut it. Nothing says €100 million like dying to see you in internationals because then you can actually shine.
Here's a list of things you can buy with €100 million:
- Two MLS expansion teams
- Gareth Bale
- An airbus A320
- Every piece of jewelry sold on Home Shopping Network in a year
- 70 bottles of the world's most expensive cognac
- 100 rolls of 22 karat gold toilet paper
- 547,945,205 Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets
Javier Mascherano has a €100 million release clause. That's the joke. Except it's real now.
Note: Release clauses are not indicative of value and at these prices for these kinds of players, are kind of useless, but seriously, Javier Mascherano has a €100 million release clause.
