Free Agent XI: Top players out of contracts this summer
It's that time of the year when players try to negotiate with their clubs and agents to seek assurances about their future. For those players whose contracts are running down, it is an absolute nightmare.
They are often left in limbo regarding a possible extension while other clubs also target these players who can be bought for free. It is a period of uncertainty no player wants but often has to live through.
So, we have compiled the best starting XI comprising players who will be free agents this summer. Some surprising names make the cut and we have quite a formidable team at our disposal!
Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus)
Our goalkeeper is none other than the legendary Gianluigi Buffon. Regarded by many as the best goalkeeper of our generation, there have been rumours that this may well be the final season of his illustrious career.
He has made almost 1050 appearances for club and country and only the UEFA Champions League title has eluded him in his 23-year career. That, however, will, in no way, tarnish the legacy of this man.
In 27 appearances, he has kept 14 clean sheets, proving that he still has got something to offer.He has hinted that he may continue playing next season but the fact remains that he could decide to call it a day sooner than we expect.
