Transfer Market Featuring Messi, Alaba, Ramos…
The free agent superstar XI
The start of the new year means the start of the period in which footballers with expiring contracts are free to start talking to other clubs.
There are several star players who this is the case for and we’ve made a line-up of 11 of the best below.
According to Transfermarkt, the combined value is 462 million euros.
The 21-year-old is the heir to Gianluigi Buffon in the Italian national team, but his AC Milan future is unclear.
Alaba, a centre-back who can also play at full-back, is set to leave Bayern Munich in the summer.
The Real Madrid captain only has six months left on his contract, which is a concern for fans of Los Blancos.
The 19-year-old is one of the rising centre-back stars in European football, but hasn’t signed a new deal with current club Manchester City.
After spending two years at PSG, Bernat’s future may lie away from the Parc des Princes.
After a move to Barcelona failed to go through in the summer, Depay could walk away from Lyon for free in the summer of 2021.
Liverpool have reportedly made Wijnaldum an offer, but he hasn’t replied yet.
He may not have the household name of some other players, but Calhanoglu is one of the highest valued central midfielders around and hasn’t agreed a new deal with AC Milan.
Now 32 years of age, Di Maria is still valued very highly and is one of those whose PSG future isn’t certain.
He wasn’t allowed to leave last summer, but Messi can depart Barcelona at the end of this season if he wishes to leave the club where he has spent his entire career.
This summer will mark one decade since Aguero joined Manchester City, but he could finally leave the English club.
