No, it means that, if a club decides to make an offer of $80,000,000 for him, you have to accept it

MunkyMadness is an unknown quantity at this point

All it means is a offer equal to or greater than the value of the release clause CANNOT be rejected. Once the player accepts the contract you receive the money they offered, just like a normal bid.

With a minimum release clause, a bid must be accepted if it equals that amount of the clause. The bid cannot be rejected, or even negotiated. It must simply be accepted. And to match the clause, the bid must be all up front - so no structured offer will do it.

It means that if a club matches the minimum release clause for one of your players, you have no choice but to accept.

And it also means nothing if the bid is under. So if a club bids 3m, it will no affect whatsoever. If you accept that bid, thats what you get.

i find minimum fee release much less of a nuisance in fm2005 because they are all so ridiculously high. cristiano ronaldo had a minimum fee release of 280,000,000 on one of his contracts - which is stupid because barca (his club) accepted a 105 mil bid from me when i tested to see if they actually considered him so valuable.

in cm0102 with lower teams the only way i could get players was to offer them cheap minimum fee releases, meaning i'd lose them as soon as they started playing well.

Which is exactly what clubs do in real life. Fernando Torres has a ridiculously high release clause - somewhere up over 100m. Yet there is no doubt that Atletico would accept well less than half of that. Ronaldinho's new contract has a buyout clause of 125m Euros.

In Spain, every player is required by law to have such a clause in his contract.

thats why most of the release fee's in spain are so high, they have to have them by law, but making them so high makes sure the clubs arn't going to lose players unless they want to sell them..

It's a bitch when you don't notice a low one on a player you have until it's too late (Xabi Alonso springs to mind).

Yes, the player can still reject the club. If it the cluase is 100 million, and a club offers that, you have to let the bidding club talk to player, so they can offer him a contract. The player still can reject the contract offer.

If you have a min release clause on a player and someone bids that amount and you really don't want to lose him, just accept the offer (i know that you have to) and then just offer him a new contract and hope he accepts it.

Or if the bidding club sets a deadline for the bid to be accepted (in a week, say) just ignore it and hope they forget about it. I've done this before and it worked for me.

I always tend to put a high clause on youth players who I want to keep before they turn professional. Usually this wards off other clubs from trying to sign them as they would have to pay the minimum fee release clause in compensation.
