Emerson's release clause in his future Barca contract will stand at €300m, as revealed by Cadena SER.

Besides, his salary will rise with time.

There's also a signing bonus of €3.5m included in the deal.

As a reminder, Emerson is expected to extend his current Barca deal until 2026. The Brazilian right-back is going to be a first-team player for Ronald Koeman next season.

The 22-year-old scored 2 goals and provided 4 assists for Real Betis last season. The defender is going to replace Dani Alves at the upcoming Copa America.

Let us now describe Emerson's deal in detail.

Barcelona and Real Betis joined forces to bring Emerson from Brazil to La Liga in 2019, Barca owning 50 per cent of the player rights and Betis 20.

The two parties decided in favour of a 2-year loan that would see Emerson come back to Camp Nou in 2021.

Barca wanted to actually own the player so they triggered the option of purchasing the further 30 per cent of the player rights – they now own 80%.

To trigger this option, the Catalans paid Betis €9m.

Besides, Betis will reportedly keep 50 percent of any future transfer fee for the 22-year-old.

Thus, Betis will still be getting some money for Emerson under the latter's contract with Barca but the right-back mostly belongs to Blaugrana now.
