Which other Real Madrid stars besides Jude Bellingham boast a staggering $1 billion release clause?

Jude Bellingham’s rise to the summit of global football has not surprised many. The young Englishman has enjoyed a remarkable rise to stardom, right from his days at Birmingham City FC to his switch to Borussia Dortmund where he established himself as one of the most promising young players in the entire world.

Real Madrid spent a fortune to bring him to the Bernabeu and quickly tied him down to a long-term contract with a bumper release clause of $1 billion. This is the latest trend from Spanish clubs, especially Barcelona and Real Madrid, to secure the future of their brightest stars. Who are the other Real Madrid youngsters with bumper release clauses? Let’s find out together.

These days, big clubs have adopted the trend of tying their brightest prospects down to long-term contracts and hefty release clauses. Even Ilkay Gundogan, who joined Barcelona on a free transfer from Manchester City in the last transfer window, has a release clause of over $200 million, a near-impossible figure for a 33-year-old.

It was recently revealed that Jude Bellingham has a bumper release clause of $1 billion in his Real Madrid contract, making him one of the eight players in the world to boast a release clause of that exact figure.

Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr. and Eduardo Camavinga also have release clauses of $1 billion each. Other players on the list include Pedri, Gavi, Ronald Araujo who is a subject of interest from Bayern Munich, Ansu Fati, and Ferran Torres, all Barcelona players.

Ancelotti offers insights on Jude Bellingham’s referee incident

Jude Bellingham starred for Real Madrid in the 4-1 rout of Villareal, with the Englishman getting on the scoresheet to score his 13th La Liga goal of the season, which still makes him the league’s top scorer.

Although it was a comfortable win for the Blancos, Ancelotti suffered a huge loss, as David Alaba suffered a season-ending injury in the first half of the game. Jude Bellingham was also substituted in the 78th minute after he had received a four-word phrase from the referee on four different occasions, leading to the manager deciding to take him off to prevent a possible suspension.

“Bellingham has been the protagonist because he has played very well and fought at all times,” Ancelotti said after the game.

“I removed him to avoid problems. He has had a problem with his shoulder, and when I can take minutes away from him, I’m going to do it,” the legendary Italian coach added.

It has been a record-breaking season for Jude Bellingham, who keeps breaking records at Real Madrid, having surpassed greats like Cristiano Ronaldo and Alfredo Di Stefano in recent weeks.
