5 notable Premier League players who will be free agents this summer
A look at the top players in the Premier League who will be available for free in the summer
In the world of football, the average cost of transfer deals has risen up immensely with the likelihood of clubs spending more than £50 million on a player being constantly on the rise.
A bargain is something that is appreciated but getting a player on a free is something that cannot be overlooked.
With a contract extension yet to be signed, numerous players will have their futures in doubt at their respective clubs.
This gives rival clubs in the Premier League a chance to snap up a top player for free and in a way, make the player's old employees look bad when he starts excelling at his new club.
Here is a list of 5 top players whose contracts expire in June 2018:
#5 Luke Shaw (Manchester United)
Luke Shaw was deemed as one of the best young English prospects when he broke on to the scene with Southampton. He then made the high-profile move to Manchester United in 2014. His spell at United has had its share of ups and downs as the progress of his career at Old Trafford has been hampered by injuries.
Shaw has gone through several injuries, knocks, and operations during his stint in Manchester but the biggest blow to his career was the double leg fracture that he suffered against PSV in the Champions League in 2015.
The Englishman has accumulated only 59 appearances in his four seasons at United. This season, he has played a total time of 623 minutes on the pitch. However, Manchester United have a totally contrasting record with and without Shaw in the team.
Despite his struggles, the former Southampton man can prove to be a valuable addition to teams in need of a left back. He has the experience of playing at the big stage both at Southampton and Manchester United.
