The XI of players without a contract

A few weeks into the big five European leagues, the summer transfer window closed on Thursday night (11pm France time), but there are still several elements looking for a new challenge: players without a contract. Whether they are at the end of their lease contracts with their former teams or after breaching the contract, these free players can still provide services on the green rectangle. The day after the transfer window closes, we bring you eleven species with the best retired or unemployed before the hour, an update to the framework proposed last week.


In the goalkeeper position, given that Luca Zidane bounced back from the German side Eibar Loris Karius He will defend the goals of this team. At 29, the 1m91 porter was not extended by Liverpool this summer. After a completely white season 2021/2022 (no matches played) and 49 games played for the Reds (47 goals conceded, 22 clean sheets), Mercy will be left with the memory of a complicated performance in the 2018 Champions League final, losing to Real Madrid in Kyiv ( 3-1). At 29, native Biberach An der Reiss can still resume his career, so why not stand by Germany. In this workforce, we can also add the former Angevin Daniel Petkovic or the Egyptian wall JapskyOne of the champions of the path of the Pharaohs in the last African Nations Cup.

Regarding central defense, we can align Dan Axel ZagadouHe has not been kept by Borussia Dortmund, but in the crosshairs of OGC Nice and Italian clubs in recent weeks, along with former Lyonnais. Jason Denayer. The Belgian has been coveted recently by Stade Rennes, Besiktas and even Saudi clubs. In the former Parisian lanes Serge Aurier Logically he occupies the right wing, despite the touches with Montpellier, Nantes or Nottingham Forest. On the left, we always find the Brazilian legend Marcelo, who left Real Madrid at the end of his contract in July, is still within sight of several squads from the old continent (Nice, Bayer 04 and an Italian club). Off the bench, Nantes and Lille ex Edgar I To reinforce the potential center hinge, just like the previous Stéphanois Timothee KolodziejczakAnd the Elyakim Mangala. Add to that the world champion 2018 Gabriel Sidibe And the Colombian Santiago Arias from the side (right) of the Algerian international player Fawzi Gholam and English Danny Rose other.

Tech midfield

Now let’s move on to the midfield, and there, too, there are still outstanding players. In this environment with 3 we decided to match former Ligue 1 players, including the Moroccan international who only played two short minutes in Ligue 1 under the RC Lens jersey: Adel Taarabt. After the termination of his contract with Benfica, he accompanies the former Portuguese star Zika – who left LOSC after six seasons – and a more offensive midfielder, the Spaniard Juan Mata (formerly Manchester United). Next to them, ready to compete with them, we find very unfazed circles, the ball at their feet: exit from the French championship – Hatem Ben Arfa And the Riad Boudebouz – The Premier League – Ross Barclay And the Fabian Delphi.

Finally, at the front of the attack, we start with the international La Roja Diego Costa, the two-time champion of England with Chelsea, who is at the fore in the offensive sector, and is still without the slightest club after rumors that sent him everywhere in Europe (Spain, France…) and even in India! To his right is the winner of the African Cup of Nations in person Sofiane FeghouliGalatasaray did not keep it after 5 seasons with the Lions. On the other lane, the former Meissen Oppa Njeet He can still provide some service, who has already scored 15 goals and 9 assists in more than 140 Ligue 1 matches. We end this typical team of idle players with other possibilities in attack, not least with several players from Serie A (Josip IlicicAnd the Diego PerottiAnd the Simon Zaza…) or former international players (NolitoAnd the Ricardo Quaresma…).
