The impressive eleven players without a contract


After each summer transfer window, many players struggle to find a club despite their free agent status. This year, it is even more the case between financial difficulties of the European clubs, already overloaded workforce and a certain mistrust in front of the form or the reputation displayed by many players rightly or wrongly. In trouble or waiting for an opportunity, here are our eleven type of free players who are on the market and hope to quickly find a taker. And there are sacred names that could help out many French and European clubs …

And for the goalkeeper position, we chose to highlight Sergio Romero, even if we could also have chosen Yoann Cardinale (ex-Nice) or Yohann Pelé (ex-OM). At 34, the Argentine international goalkeeper (96 caps) has been an eternal understudy since the 2013-14 season (Monaco, Sampdoria, Manchester United). Left free by MU this summer, the one who had a white season in 2020-21 could provide services to many clubs. One of the gondola heads of this eleven type arranged in 3-5-2 is obviously Serge Aurier. The former right-back of PSG surprised his world by terminating his contract with Tottenham in the last hours of the transfer window. Free as the air for 3 weeks, the mainstay of the Elephants of Côte d’Ivoire surprisingly has no contact at the moment. However, there are rumors that Russian and Middle Eastern clubs could come forward. To complete this defensive trio, two well-known players in France, namely Nicolas N’Koulou (31 years old) and Eliaquim Mangala (30 years old). The Cameroonian defensive rock, who has played more than a hundred matches in 4 years spent at Torino, has not found a club, but his solid experience. Rennes who were looking to densify their central defense where a more exotic adventure could satisfy them. As for the former most expensive defender in the world, he is still free since his departure from Valencia FC this summer. If he had a few touches in Greece during the summer, the international tricolor (8 caps) is still waiting for the right challenge and trains assiduously with a physical trainer. In this defense, we could also have cited Jemerson, the 29-year-old former Monaco driver. The latter has absolutely no contact. Sad for the Brazilian international who was nicknamed when he arrived on the Rock, “Blackenbauer”.

Ben Arfa, Grenier and Bentaleb as free as the air!

In the midfield and in view of the internationals still free, we decided to choose 5. We start with Paulinho, the former Barça player. At 33, the international Auriverde (56 caps, 13 goals) could join the Corinthians. Clément Grenier meanwhile is tracked by European clubs, MLS but also Qatari. As one of his relatives told us, he is waiting for the right offer and wants to favor the athlete over the financial “It’s not a question of money for Clément. He has already done that in Guingamp. He does not run after money, but after a real project ”. Nabil Bentaleb is also always looking for a new project since his departure from Schalke 04. According to our information, the Algerian international community, in full possession of its means, has been in advanced discussions with a Ligue 1 club. his departure from Bournemouth, the former great Arsenal hope Jack Wilshere (29) is not overwhelmed by offers. To keep in shape, he has been training for a few days with the Gunners. To finish with this attractive midfielder, we obviously find Hatem Ben Arfa. To believe that the former midfielder of OM, OL and PSG likes to find himself in this type of situation. Announced with insistence at the Esperance de Tunis last week, HBA still does not have the shadow of a concrete lead. If Bordeaux tried its luck last year with very little success, it is difficult to see who could give it a chance in France this fall.

In front, we chose two names in clear loss of speed namely Sebastien Giovinco (34 years old) and Daniel Sturridge (32 years old). The atomic ant, who revealed himself to Juventus before becoming one of the best players of all time in MLS for Toronto FC was lost in Saudi Arabia for Al-Hilal (3 very average seasons the last of which with only one goal in 21 matches). Released by the Saudi club since the end of August, his name was mentioned at AEK Athens but he could finally return in the coming days to Toronto FC, where he conne his best years as a player. Finally, for the England international, winner of the 2019 Champions League with Liverpool, he has not played for 18 months after his departure from Trabzonspor and his heavy suspension for suspicious online betting. If he said he was in great shape in social networks, ready to replay at the highest level, he has been in Mallorca for a few weeks. Tested and author of a friendly goal, the England international was not included on the lists of the Spanish club and his coach expressed some reservations before going further. “Sturridge is training with us and after a period we’ll see if he continues or not. At the moment, I don’t know. He is a player who was ‘top’ but it takes a long time and he needs to get back to his best form. “ There are therefore still some great deals to be seized for clubs looking for experience at a lower cost outside the transfer window. It remains to be seen who will emerge from the shadows and who will have to wait in Korea before finding the land …
