A rumor linking FC Barcelona midfielder Pedri to Paris Saint-Germain surfaced, catching some people off guard. The capital club could sell Marco Verratti this summer, so they’d need a replacement.
PSG would have to activate a temporary clause in Pedri’s contract, reportedly set at €110 million. Nonetheless, a report out of Spain reveals the information isn’t accurate.
Journalist Adrià Albets categorically denied the report suggesting the existence of a temporary release clause of €110 million in the young Spaniard’s contract. Albets’ reporting further clarified that Pedri’s release clause stands at an astounding €1 billion.

The information should end the odd rumor unless further details surface. However, these types of gossip will emerge, with the transfer window nearly reaching its final month.
If Verratti leaves the French capital this summer, it is no surprise that manager Luis Enrique would want Pedri. Enrique has managed the young midfielder during his time with the Spanish national team.
Still, the two reuniting at the club level will be a pipe dream for the new PSG boss.
