Every player has his price, or so they say, although clubs often strive to do all they can to ward off the interest of other teams in their prized assets.

This is normally done with the insertion of a release clause into a player's contract that is so high that no club in their right mind would even contemplate paying it.

But which players have the highest release clauses in football? Well, here are the top five...

Cristiano Ronaldo

€1bn

 


Lionel Messi

€250m
 

 


Fernando Torres

€127m
 

 


Hulk

€100m
 

 


Thiago Alcantara

€100m
