European soccer has entered a decisive stretch when it comes to the 2021-2022 season. And it is that many leagues are already in key matches and the great continental competitions such as the Champions League and the Europa League, are in the last stages. That said, there are cadres already beginning to think about next season, and that includes looking at which players they could add to their rosters.
In this winter market, clubs like Barcelona, Atlético de Madrid, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Liverpool or Inter have made some interesting moves to improve the level of their teams. And for the summer it is expected to be a busy market due to the number of players who will be free.
For this reason, in the following article we present six players from the most important leagues in the world of soccer who will be free from June and, therefore, will be able to sign for any other team.
Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid)
The historical Uruguayan forward has been able to leave a legacy in teams like Ajax, Liverpool and Barcelona and now in Atlético de Madrid (to a lesser extent). However, there has still been no talk of a possible renewal and the truth is that, at 35 years old, "the gunman" has played 38 games so far this season and has scored 13 goals; Far from his best records and what he achieved with Atletico in the league last season, when his 21 goals were key for the colchoneros to celebrate.
Angel Di Maria (Paris Saint Germain)
After almost 7 years as a PSG player, Ángel Di María could be experiencing his last commitments as part of the Parisian squad. The terrible comeback in the round of 16 of the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid would have made a deep impression on the French team and they would be thinking about restructuring the club. The 34-year-old Argentine would be part of that replacement, despite the fact that this season he has played 25 games and has 3 goals and 5 assists. The only possibility for Di Maria to stay in Paris would be for his contract to be renewed, otherwise he will leave in June as a free agent.
Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)
After winning the Champions League and the Club World Cup with Chelsea, César Azpilicueta could leave the English team. The versatile defender is a key player in the 3-4-2-1 set up by DT Thomas Tuchel, where he plays mainly as a lane in the right sector. The renewal of a contract that ends in a few months has not yet been announced, so if nothing extraordinary happens, the Spaniard would be out of the picture in which he has played since 2012. Barcelona could be his next destination, but everything is for see.
Paulo Dybala (Juventus)
Juventus are going through a complex moment after being eliminated in the Champions League round of 16 at the hands of Villarreal. And Paulo Dybala has not yet renewed with the Italian team, so he is either waiting for a renewal offer that meets his expectations or he would be with his mind set on a new goal. At 28 years old and in a World Cup year, 2022 could be the year that marks the end of one adventure and the beginning of another for the skilled Argentine striker.
Paul PogbaManchester United
At Manchester United they seem to be in a constant collective slump, and that seems to affect individual performance and vice versa. Given this situation of so much instability and so few certainties, one of the players who could leave Manchester would be Paul Pogba. The 29-year-old French midfielder would have one foot more outside than inside and, if he does not qualify for the next Champions League, he would leave as a free agent and offers will not be lacking. Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are always on the lookout.
Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint Germain)
Talking about Mbappé is probably mentioning one of the best players in the world, one of the most decisive and one that everyone wants to count on. His exhibition in the qualifying round against Real Madrid dispelled the few doubts that could exist about the more than proven quality of the former Monaco. And, despite the painful elimination, Mbappé showed that he is more than ready to take the next step in his meteoric career. Madrid media take for granted his contract with Real Madrid for next season. In the Spanish capital they already dream of the offensive trident that they can form together with Benzema and Vinícius Júnior.
