    Release clause is set at 150M€. He's bound to Atletico for his life.

    Respect for Saul, this kind of players are rare in modern football.

    Given to the inflation of transfer market for each year it passes, I don't think €150m will be too heafty to sign a great player like Sal in future.

    That being said, I expect Sal to stay with them for more or less the rest of his career.

    Tbf, Atltico de Madrid is a top tier club in European football who challenge for UCL, Liga & CdR every season.

    And Sal has been a starter for the past 2 seasons and is a Rojiblanco himself. I'd like to know how much his wage is compared to rest of Atleti.

    I've always said Sal wasn't gonna leave them, so his contract extension isn't a surprise.

    I know that but just him making that longterm commitment to the club is worth a lot of respect.

    Amazing player and definitely one of my favourite non-Barca players.

    A nine year contract is a bit crazy though, he's 22 years old and has basically committed his entire top level career to Atletico. Honourable move, but football changes rapidly and this could come back to haunt him.

    Seems like a silly move. I wonder if he will get to renegotiate his salary over these nine years.

    8 years ago, 91M for Ronaldo was seen as insane and he was already a Ballon D'or and champions league winner who scored 42 goals that season. A few years later, Gareth Bale who isn't nearly as good sells for 100M. Now we're talking about an 18 year old Kylian Mbappe selling for a potential 120M.

    I wonder what transfer value will be considered "normal" in 5 years. Maybe Saul's release clause will be considered a bargain, at the rate things are going at.
