2022 football free agents available for transfers and new signings

Spread the love

We are at the point of the season in which any player whose contract expires at the end of the season will be in talks with other clubs about a Bosman transfer in the summer. While several unknown players will be out of contract this summer, some of the world’s finest players will also be available as free agents.

Some of the top players who will be free agents this summer are Kylian Mbappe, Paulo Dybala, Paul Pogba, Franck Kessie, Antonio Rudiger, and Ousmane Dembele.

Lorenzo Insigne, a Euro 2020 and Napoli star, has already agreed to a Bosman deal to Toronto and will arrive in the summer. Atletico Madrid’s Hector Herrera had agreed to a pre-contract with Houston Dynamo.

Zenit struck a pre-contract agreement with Bayer Leverkusen in December, but the Bundesliga club only made it public in January. In the summer, Niklas Sule will also join Borussia Dortmund as a free agent.

Juventus has revealed that Dybala will depart the club after the season, while Barcelona president Joan Laporta has all but finalized the transfers of free agents Kessie and Andreas Christensen.

Those two movements, however, are not yet official. Perhaps never before have so many top-tier players been available as free agents, and elite teams such as Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, and Barcelona are running out of time to prevent their superstars from going for nothing.

Below are the top free agents of the 2022 summer transfer window in the top four leagues in Europe:

His contract with Manchester United will officially expire on June 30, 2022. Before now, the Premier League club wanted to extend the Frenchman’s contract but they could not due to Pogba’s financial demands. Hence, he could return to Juventus as a free agent this summer.


2. Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea)

Premier league expiring player's contracts (free agents) by end of 2022:

Antonio Rudiger has been playing for Chelsea since July 9, 2017. He joined the club from Roma for a transfer fee worth €35 million. Before now, Chelsea tried to extend his contract but he and Chelsea were able to agree on a new wage arrangement. Hence, the Premier League club had to allow the 29-year-old German defender to go.

Reports claimed that Rudiger has signed a four-year deal with Real Madrid. The central defender is expected to resume his career at Real Madrid at the end of the 2021-2022 season.

La Liga expiring contract (free agents):

Ousmane Dembele has been playing for FC Barcelona since August 25, 2017, after he joined the club from Borussia Dortmund for a transfer fee worth €140 million. The Spanish giants decided to spend so much on the 24-year-old French right-winger because they thought he could become the next big deal at the game. Unfortunately, injuries and inconsistency did not allow him to live up to expectations.

Hence, FC Barcelona are not willing to renew the contract of the 24-year-old Frenchman which means that Dembele will be among the free agents in the coming summer transfer window. Though there were speculations that he is wanted at Newcastle United, his next destination is not known yet.

2. Gareth Bale (Real Madrid)

La Liga expiring contract (free agents):

Gareth Bale has been playing for Real Madrid since September 1, 2013. The 32-year-old Welshman joined the Spanish giants from Tottenham Hotspur for a transfer fee worth €101 million.

Since he joined the club, Bale has scored 106 goals and provided 67 assists in 258 games in all competitions. The Wales international has helped Real Madrid to win four UEFA Champions League titles but fitness issues and trouble with the club’s fans will not encourage Madrid to extend his stay.

2022 football free agents available for transfers and new signings

Paulo Dybala joined Juventus on July 1, 2015, from Palermo. Juventus paid €41 million for his services which yielded lots of fruits. Before things turned sour between the club and the player, Dybala who plays as a second striker scored 115 goals and provided 48 assists in 291 games in all competitions.

Paulo Dybala wanted to stay at Juventus a little longer but the Italian club failed to agree on personal terms with the 28-year-old Argentine footballer. Hence, he had to bow out. Dybala is free to join any club interested in him at the end of this season for free.

2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (AC Milan)

2022 football free agents available for transfers and new signings

Zlatan Ibrahimovic who first played for AC Milan in 2010, and 2011, returned to the Italian club on January 2, 2020, as a free agent. Since then, the 40-year-old Swedish striker has remained an important figure at the club. But no matter how important he has become, he can not play football forever.

Hence, AC Milan are not looking like they would renew the contract of the 40-year-old striker any further. The fact that he has managed to play just 26 games in all competitions this season shows that his contract with Milan would not be extended. At the time of publishing this report, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was yet to make his next move public.

Since then, Di Maria has scored 91 goals and provided 118 assists in 293 games in all competitions. But PSG are no longer interested in extending his contract and the club has permitted the 34-year-old Argentine right-winger to join any club interested in him on a free transfer this summer.
