Barcelona defender Marc Bartra confirms €12m release clause

Barcelona centre-back Marc Bartra has confirmed his release clause has dropped to €12 million due to his lack of appearances last season.

Spain international Bartra's previous clause had been set at €25 million but, under the terms of his contract, that has been reduced after a campaign in which he made only 14 La Liga appearances.

The 24-year-old confirmed the news to Radio Marca and added: "We'll see how the situation develops."

Marc Bartra had limited involvement under Luis Enrique last season.

Bartra found himself behind Gerard Pique, Javier Mascherano and Jeremy Mathieu under Luis Enrique last season, while Thomas Vermaelen -- who spent the vast majority of the season on the sidelines -- will also be competing for a place next season.

Barca were unable to prevent Thiago Alcantara joining Bayern Munich for €25 million in 2013 as the result of a similar clause.
