Barcelona warned over Messi's £271m release clause

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said it's now possible a club could trigger Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi's €300 million (£272.8 million) release clause after Neymar broke the world transfer record with his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Catalan giants have been rocked by the loss of key forward Neymar this month, seeing the Brazil global join Paris Saint-Germain after a £198m clause in his contract was met.

'In a period of just a month that suddenly sounds possible too.

World football's perception of money and the transfer market was already spiralling in recent years, but Klopp's comments suggest the fees teams pay for the world's finest could reach new levels. That used to be an outrageous amount. I mean who would pay €300m. 'No coach would demand such a thing.

The president of Barcelona Josep Maria Bartomeu has called into question the character of Neymar who chose to leave the club for PSG this summer. A simple solution would be a rule. "Where we want to go and where this should stop", Klopp added.

According to the report, Di Maria wants to leave PSG following the arrival of Neymar, knowing that his opportunities at the French club will become limited. This is a topic now since it happened for the first time'.

Purists at Barcelona hope the virtuoso Brazilian's departure will lead to new coach Ernesto Valverde building a more balanced side and reverting to the possession-based style of play perfected under former coach Pep Guardiola to try and wrestle the title back from Madrid. "You can develop a team".

"That's what I like about this sport. They made the offer and they finalised it".
