The Argentinian's now former team-mate Neymar had a €220m (£198m) clause written into his deal at Barcelona as part of La Liga regulations requiring it as part of a contract.

It is a dirty divorce: after his 222 million euro change to Paris Saint-Germain as Neymar now wants to sue his past employer, Barcelona at the Federation Internationale de Football Association.

And Liverpool boss Klopp believes it is now conceivable a club could pay Messi's even more ludicrous release fee to prise the five-time Ballon d'Or victor away from Camp Nou.

According to the report, Di Maria wants to leave PSG following the arrival of Neymar, knowing that his opportunities at the French club will become limited. €150m or €550m or whatever and then no one would complain anymore.
