The buyout clause in his Barcelona contract is for a staggering €250 million.
If, for some reason, Barcelona decides they don't want Messi anymore, he is going to get seriously paid. Like, we're talking $330-plus million. That's more than the GDP of 10 countries. Somehow, we don't think it will come to that; not only could Barcelona not afford it, but paying the greatest player in the world to ply his trade for someone else doesn't make much business sense.
