Football Leaks | Lucas Silva’s €500m release clause

Brazilian midfielder Lucas Silva was built up to be the next big thing, but his heart condition and poor season on loan at Olympique de Marseille in the previous campaign appear set to disturb that.

Real Madrid were not taking any chances when he signed terms with them initially however in 2015, according to a report in Le Soir as part of the Football Leaks series.

Los Blancos ensured that a €500m release clause was inserted into Silva’s contract. When he was sent on loan to Ligue 1 side Marseille, there was an exclusive buy-out clause included in the deal worth €60m…

The elevated clauses aside, the player is currently battling a heart condition and we hope that he will beat it and that he will be back on European football’s pitches again soon.
