What is a Release Clause? A release clause is a price that is placed on players in order for them to be able to buy out their contracts. Therefore, there is always a clause on every player’s head that they have to pay to their club in order to become a free agent. Most of the times, this money is too huge for the player to pay so the club that is very much interested in this player is the one one who has to come up with this money in order to activate the clause.
