Yes, a very reasonable 150M release clause that cannot be triggered before 2022 - at this rate, it's pure fantasy to believe anyone would pay this for any defender much less one that has struggled to adapt like the Dutchman
The clause looks high at this moment but it wouldn't have been completely ridiculous in a few years had he developed like most people thought he would (and is surely lower than the one he would've received at your club by the way). I'm not sure why this is supposed to mean Raiola did a bad job though, you just seem to be upset that the player isn't at Barcelona.

Reasonable or not, having a release clause is better than not having one for the player. If he had signed for Barça or Real Madrid, he would have one of those crazy release clauses of 400 M or something and you wouldn't be complaining about that.

Then you haven't the foggiest idea what reasonable means, an improbably high transfer fee effectively makes it useless since the unusual clause that was included (Not mandatory in Italy, btw) was meant to give the player an 'out' should he desire it in 2 seasons. Which tells you 2 things. One, the player already was preparing an exit upon arriving and two, the fee being unreasonable meant he was unlikely to move unless Juve were forced to accept a huge profit on their initial investment. A gilded cage, if you will - similar to what you have in Paris

You are arguing over the fact the sum needed to meet that clause but you are still not explaining how Raiola did a bad work regarding de Ligt transfer/contract.

And the clause is just twice the amount paid by Juventus. Do you think they are fools to spend 75 M€ on a CB and put a 80 M€ release clause ? Respect their intelligence.

PSG has nothing to do here since we don't do any clause, Neymar learnt about it the hard way past summer.

Are some people seriously already writing him off?
Overreaction and wishful thinking.

Another proof of Raiola work for his clients:



Borussia Dortmund granted Haaland a buy out clause in his contract, against club philosophy.

Players who put 100% finances first work for Raiola. His major clients to go clubs who offer the most cash. Hopefully we wont work with him. Think Balotelli has been the only major raiola client we have signed and that was decade ago.

He went to Juve. Why was that such a poor decision??? Raiola seems to do a fantastic job for his clients from what I can see. It seems very convenient to have him described as a comedy villain while the billionaire owners continue to work the way they do. Distraction at it's finest....
