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.
The buyout clause in his Barcelona contract is for a staggering €250 million.
