Soccer/Futbol superstar, Lionel Messi, longed for a transfer after a humiliating Champions League knock out loss to Bayern Munich. Where to go from here? Paris? Manchester? Luckily, he built in a back-door exit clause in his contract where, if he notified Barcelona brass before the end of the current season, any club with a big enough wallet that was courting him could avoid paying Barcelona a $800 million transfer fee—obviously a prohibitive sum.
