The biggest football stars out of contract in summer 2021



Those of us who have long played FIFA or Football Manager will know all too well that January is the most exciting month in any career mode.

The video game occasionally stupidly forgets to renegotiate contracts for some of the world’s biggest footballers, and you are given a free shot at snapping up icons for absolutely nothing.

Like shooting fish in a barrel, you build a super team of over 30’s on free transfers, and you hastily blitz through the final six months of the season, excitedly anticipating the arrival of your Galacticos.

Well, conspiracy theories that suggest we are living in a computer simulation of reality may be more accurate than we first thought, because someone clearly forgot to trigger the auto-renew button on football’s elite this year.

But which players are up for grabs for free in the summer? 90min is here with a list of the top players ready to walk away from their current clubs on 1 July 2021.

Not sure if you’ve heard of this guy, but apparently he’s kind of a big deal. Lionel Messi wants to leave Barcelona at the end of the season, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain want to sign him – but sources tell us he also earns quite a bit of money. It won’t be cheap, guys.

David Alaba

David Alaba is a Bayern legend, but it looks as if his time in Bavaria has come to its conclusion. Chelsea have been linked with a deal for the Austrian defender in the past, so will they reignite their interest when he is available for nothing?

Gianluigi Donnarumma
The big man for the big occasion | Jonathan Moscrop/Getty Images

On one hand, every statement from Gianluigi Donnarumma indicates he wants to stay at Milan for the rest of his career. On the other, his agent is a certain Mino Raiola, who would not benefit at all from that loyalty. Deadlock at San Siro.

Sergio Ramos

Surely, surely Sergio Ramos won’t leave Real Madrid this summer!? The Blancos captain is yet to put pen to paper, so for now, we can only speculate on his future.

Paris Saint-Germain v Olympique Lyon - Ligue 1

Lyon star Memphis Depay was destined to join Barcelona in the summer, until la Blaugrana failed to stump up the cash. Now available at a much cheaper price (if not for free), Ronald Koeman will look to reunite with his Netherlands star.

Georginio Wijnaldum

A Liverpool legend, and an under-appreciated one at that. Georginio Wijnaldum is another Dutchman being courted by Koeman and Barça, and while some Reds may think he’s past his best, the Camp Nou rumours show he still holds a place at the top of European football.

Sergio Aguero

He may be more of a streamer than a goalscorer nowadays, but Sergio Aguero has definitely got a couple more years left in his legs. That is, if he doesn’t pack in his football career for his fame on Twitch.

SSC Napoli v AC Milan - Serie A
Timeless | MB Media/Getty Images

Everyone thought he was finished when he went to MLS. In January 2020, Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to Milan. He has scored 10 goals in six appearances this season. Whether he stays in Serie A or not, Ibra has plenty left to offer.

Paris Saint Germain v Istanbul Basaksehir - UEFA Champions League
Di Maria is a quality winger | Xavier Laine/Getty Images

Angel Di Maria may be 32 years old, but he could still win games singlehandedly at most levels. Or he could go and tear it up back in his homeland of Argentina. He’s earned it.

Luka Modric
Age is but a number for Modric | Soccrates Images/Getty Images

The years tick by, but Luka Modric’s class remains in tact. His Madrid contract will expire in the summer, but they’d be crazy to lose him for nothing in July.

Edinson Cavani

Edinson Cavani’s brief cameos for Man Utd have demonstrated that he will never lose that goalscoring knack. Will the Red Devils extend his stay beyond this season, or set him free to wreak havoc elsewhere?

Hakan Calhanoglu
Calhanoglu has come on leaps and bounds over the past 12 months | Jonathan Moscrop/Getty Images

Hakan Calhanoglu was much maligned by Milan fans during his first two and a half years at the club, but he has exploded into the team’s key creator over the past 12 months. Now attracting interest from Manchester United, I Rossoneri have a job on their hands if they want to keep the Turkish playmaker.

Julian Draxler

Once a target for every Premier League club, Julian Draxler is on the verge of waving goodbye to Paris once and for all. Will we finally see him on British shores?

Arkadiusz Milik
Milik has barely featured for Napoli this season | Francesco Pecoraro/Getty Images

Arkadiusz Milik almost left SSC Napoli for AS Roma in the summer, but the move fell through at the last minute. Will I Giallorossi return to sign the Polish hitman?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to renew his contract at Roma beyond the coming summer, but should he decide against it, his new club would be welcoming the Armenian in the form of his life.

Thauvin has grown considerably since his Newcastle days | NICOLAS TUCAT/Getty Images

Yes, this is the same Florian Thauvin that flopped at Newcastle United. Having proven himself as a quality player at Marseille, the Frenchman fancies one last crack at the big time.

Riqui Puig
Puig could leave Barcelona this summer | Pool/Getty Images

Although he is considered one of the hottest prospects in Spanish football, Riqui Puig has failed to convince Barcelona coach Koeman of his talents. Who will leave first though?

Eric Garcia
Garcia has expressed his desire to join Barça | Quality Sport Images/Getty Images

Eric Garcia has expressed his desire to leave Man City and join Barça, while Barça have expressed their desire to sign Garcia. All feels fairly routine and inevitable for this one.

Boateng is back to his best with Bayern | Lars Baron/Getty Images

Jerome Boateng hit his dodgy spell and came out the other side as a stronger man. Whichever team snaps him up can most definitely count on his endless experience.

Bernat has been a solid player for PSG over the years | FRANCK FIFE/Getty Images

Juan Bernat is another PSG player set to leave the French giants this summer, and they’ll be losing a valuable squad player at that.

Joshua King

it wasn’t long ago that Josh King was being tipped for a switch to Man Utd, but injuries and relegation have seen his stock fall dramatically. Now scrapping in the Championship, is he still on the mind of the Premier League giants?

Moussa Marega
A proven prospect for Premier League sides | Quality Sport Images/Getty Images

Moussa Marega has been a consistent goalscorer for Porto over the years, and he is ready to put his clinical nature to the test in the Premier League.

Juan Mata
Mata remains a wonderful player on the eye | Pool/Getty Images

Juan Mata should go down as a Premier League legend for all his years of service to Chelsea and Man Utd, but the time to make a return to Spain may be upon him.

Shkodran Mustafi
Mustafi – the Barcelona target | Catherine Ivill/Getty Images

As if 2020 wasn’t mental enough, Shkodran Mustafi is a genuine target for Barça. Stop the world, I wanna get off guys.

Elseid Hysaj
Hysaj has been a loyal servant to Napoli over the years | Alessandro Sabattini/Getty Images

Elseid Hysaj was a Napoli regular for five years, but he has barely featured for I Partenopei this season. Time to part ways, perhaps.

Fabian Schär (Newcastle)

It’s fair to say that Fabian Schar has shown himself to be a competent Premier League defender – he’s had a lot of practice at the heart of this limp Newcastle side. A good squad player for almost any top flight team.

Lucas Vazquez
The ultimate squad player | Quality Sport Images/Getty Images

Lucas Vazquez has been a bit-part Madrid player for far too long. Leave your comfort zone and show us exactly what you can do on a weekly basis, Lucas.

Driussi has time on his side | Giampiero Sposito/Getty Images

Only 24 years of age, there is still plenty of time for Sebastian Driussi to fulfil the potential he showed during his early years at River Plate.

Jonny Evans

Jonny Evans has confirmed all our suspicions during his time at Leicester City: he can cut it among the big boys. The 32-year-old has even been linked with a move back to Man Utd – that’s not a bad idea, actually.

Ryan Bertrand
Bertrand is a decent Premier League left-back | Pool/Getty Images

Southampton are believed to be in talks with Ryan Bertrand over a new contract, but there will be plenty of vultures circling should a deal fail to materialise.

Javier Martinez
Javi Martinez is a mountain of experience | Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images

For any team needing to boost their experience and squad depth in the midfield or defence next year, Javi Martinez is the man. A winner at all levels.

Demarai Gray
Gray has failed to deliver on his early promise | James Williamson – AMA/Getty Images

Having threatened to become a Premier League star, Demarai Gray has never quite delivered on those promises. His time at Leicester City is coming to an end, and he has to find a new home next year.

Jesse Lingard
Lingard’s Man Utd career has spiralled terribly | James Williamson – AMA/Getty Images

Get Jesse Lingard happy and firing again, and you’ll have earned yourself a lovely little player on the cheap. This deal’s got a successful couple of seasons at Roma (or Newcastle) written all over it.

Diego Costa
A scary man | Denis Doyle/Getty Images

Diego Costa’s return to Atletico Madrid has been nothing short of an unmitigated disaster. Somehow, I don’t think he’ll be sticking around beyond the summer. A year in China, perhaps?

Danilo D'Ambrosio
A useful and versatile defensive option | Paolo Bruno/Getty Images

Danilo D’Ambrosio must be Inter coach Antonio Conte’s dream defender: a wing-back who can do a job at centre-back if needs be. It’d be a shock if I Nerazzurri didn’t tie him down for longer.

Juventus v Torino FC - Serie A
N’Koulou is ready to leave Torino | Stefano Guidi/Getty Images

Nicolas N’Koulou has caught the eye of Italy’s big guns in recent transfer windows, but Torino blocked his exit. There’s nothing they can do to stop him leaving now, though.

Danny Rose
Danny Rose is not enjoying his football | Alex Morton/Getty Images

Tottenham Hotspur and Danny Rose’s relationship has come to a bitter halt, and the end is finally in sight. The left-back still has a few good years left in the tank though, despite what Jose Mourinho thinks…

David Luiz
Luiz has proven a poor signing | Pool/Getty Images

FOR SALE: Ticking time bomb. Price £0, ONO. Arsenal may decide to chuck this human hand grenade far from the Emirates stadium this summer, but who will be crazy enough to pick David Luiz up?

Christian Benteke

Are you on the look out for a striker who has scored nine goals in three and a half seasons? Then look no further than Christian Benteke!

Marcos Rojo

Who doesn’t want a hot-headed, unreliable Argentine at the heart of their defence? Marcos Rojo won’t be Man Utd’s problem after this summer, but he’ll find a loving home elsewhere.


Resumen y goles del Freiburg-Bayern (xx) partido de la jornada 33.




Actuar. a las 22:58


Adrià Corominas

Insaciable y matador como nadie. Así eg Lewandowski, un jugador que no necesita motivos para perforar las metas rivales y que quedará ligado para siempre a la historia de la Bundesliga.




Flekken; Kübler (Woo-yeong, 72 ‘), Lienhart, Gulde, Günter; Sallai (Schmid, 62 ‘), Höfler, Santamaría (Keitel, 73’), Grifo; Demirovic (Höler, 56 ‘), Petersen (Haberer, 61’).


Nubel; Davies, Hernández (Marc Roca, 61 ‘), Boateng, Süle (Sarr, 73’); Alaba, Kimmich; Gnabry, Müller (Tolisso), Sané (Coman, 73 ‘); Lewandowski.


0-1 M. 26 Lewandowski (p); 1-1 M. 29 Gulde; 1-2 M. 53 Sané; 2-2 M. 81 Gunter.


EN: Sallai (17 ‘), Davies (87’), Alaba (90 ‘).

El ariete del Bayern consiguió, de penalti, el gol número 40 en esta edición de la Bundesliga, igualando así el récord que tenía otro mito del fútbol alemán como es Gerd Müller, que en la temporada 1971/72 consiguió también un total de 40 goles en un solo curso. Casos medium siglo después, Lewandowski se apunta otro récord a su colección.

Y es que con otra Bundesliga en el bolsillo, y ya van nueve consecutivas para el Bayern, todos los focos del partido estaban puestos encima de Lewandowski. Él y su posible récord fue el máximo aliciente. Y como de costumbre, y el 9 ‘no defraudó.

Bajo una fina lluvia, el polaco solo tardó 26 minutos en pasar a la historia. Un cometido penalti a la piel Müller y señalado por el VAR le dio la opción al polaco de igualar la hazaña. Y antes de este regalo, no falla.

Celebración con homenaje

El polaco lo transformó con su paradinha característica y lo celebró mostrando una camiseta que rezaba el lema ‘4ever Gerd’ (para siempre, Gerd), en clara alusión al mito alemán al que acababa de igualar.

Después, sus compañeros también le rindieron su homenaje particular with a pasillo de plausos justo delante del banquillo.

Las tuvo, y muy claras, para hacer el segundo. Pero el atacante del Bayern se quedó con las ganas y deberá aprovechar la última jornada para hacer el gol que le dé solitaire la propiedad del récord.

solo empáticos

El gol fue histórico, pero no sirvió para que su equipo supera a un Freiburg muy combativo, que solo tardó 3 minutos en igualar la acometida a través de Gulde, que remató a placer un corner servido por Grifo ante la pasividad defensiva de Sobre el.

En la segunda parte, el cuadro bávaro se elevó intensamente y con el mi dominio acaparador, consiguiendo a través de Sané el 1-2 que les volvía a poner por delante. A partir de aquí, el conjunto de Película si se dedicara a pasarle balones un Lewandowski y el Fribourg aprovechó la situación para apretar y perform el empate, obra de Günter.

Un punto right, salvado gracias a ambos porteros, intrascendente para los campeones, but importantísimo para los de la Selva Negra, que se meten de lleno en la lucha por la septima plaza que les dé en el playoff de la nueva Conference League.

Lewandowski se menciona a sí mismo con la historia en Freiburg



15/05/2021 a las 08:00


Roger Payró

Nunca necesita un buen motivo para marcar goles, va en su adn y ya. sin emabargo Robert Lewandowski hace tiempo que miraba de reojo a record that holding a shot en las dos próximas jornadas. Son las que restan para que acabe the Bundesliga y el aries of Bayern suma ya 39 esta temporada. Es sólo uno de los igualar los históricos 40 del mítico Gerd Müller, marca que persiste desde 1972 y que parecía imbatible hasta que llegó Lewandowski. Hoy, el conjunto de Flick visita a Friburgo con la posibilidad de igualar o superar el récord como principal acicate.

La liga ya se resolvió a su favor, por lo que sigue habiendo ciertas rotaciones aunque la presencia de Robert en tip es incuestionable. On lesión con Polonia le hizo perderse tres partidos de liga y parecía que se le escurriría entre las manos, pero el ‘trillizo’ que endosó al M’Gladbach le abrió nuevamente las puertas.

Si emparejas al Bayern en la Selva Negra con un Fribourg que lucha especificando contra los ‘potros’ y el Union Berlín la plaza de la nueva Conference League. Gulde y Heintz son duda para Christian Streich, mientras que Flick no podrá contar con Douglas Costa, Goretzka ni Nianzou y Choupo-Moting y Hoffmann hijo duda.

En otro orden, en la parte baja el Colonia buscará tres puntos en Berlin ante el Hertha para evitar el equilibrio de la Bundsliga2. En la pelea por evitar la zona roja también está el Arminia Bielefeld, que recibe al Hoffenheim, Sí Werder Bremen, que visita a Augsburgo. Todos los mencionados menos el Hoffenheim aún no se han salvado, por lo que este sábado resulta clave.

Alineaciones probables:

Friburgo: Flekken; Kübler, Lienhart, Schlotterbeck, Günter; Schmid, Santamaria, Höfler, Grifo; Demirovic, Höler

Bayern: Nubel; Pavard, Boateng, Lucas Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Alaba; Sané, Müller, Musiala; y Lewandowski

Ahora: 15.30

Rummenigge asegura la continuidad de Lewandowski



14/05/2021 a las 20:42


Martí Grau

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, director general del Bayern de Múnich, confirma la continuidad de Robert Lewandowski. In unas declaraciones para el periódico alemán imagen, Rummenigge no dudó en busca del futuro del delantero polaco en el club bávaro. «¡Seguro que se queda! ¿Quién vende a un jugador que marca 60 goles al año?«.

Además, el director del Bayern desmintió les informaciones que relacionaban a Pinos zahavial, en representación de Lewandowski, con un posible interés de vender al goleador. «No preliminar. Sabes exactamente lo que quieres en el FC Bayern«.

Por otro lado, Rummenigge cree que los rumores sobre una posible desvinculación del delantero Polaco perjudican en el club alemán. «Es importante que sean siempre los hechos siempre a favor del FC Bayern«. A la edad de 32 años de edad, es difícil entender los motivos que podrían llevar a cabo a Lewandowski lejos de Múnich.

Opción Haaland descartada, por ahora

El exportero alemán, Oliver Kahn, futuro consejero delegado del Bayern de Múnich a partir de 2022, descartó rotundamente el fichaje de Erling Haaland este verano. «Un jugador que supera los 100 millones de euros es actualmente impensable para el FC Bayern«. El noruego es un día de hoy el deseo de los grandes clubes de Europa.

Kahn cree que con los incrementales registros goleadores de Lewandowski esta vez no hay que preocuparse por un suplente. «Actualmente suma 39 goles en la Bundesliga. Only por esa razón, no tenemos que preocuparnos por Haaland hoy. Estamos contentos de tener a Robert con nosotros en esta condición. Puede mantener este nivel durante unos años más. »
