Mbappe, Pogba, Rudiger: The insane XI of players who are now free to negotiate with new clubs

Kylian Mbappe is in the final year of his PSG contract

The 2022 January transfer window is officially open for business.

And as well as teams being able to acquire new players for the second half of the season, players whose deals expire in the summer are now free to negotiate with new clubs.

That includes Paris Saint-Germain‘s Kylian Mbappe, with the French superstar looking increasingly likely to join Real Madrid in what would be arguably the biggest free transfer in football history.

The 23-year-old is far from the only high-profile player who is now free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a new club, though.

In fact, you can create an insane full XI of footballers in that situation, one that’s worth a whopping €540 million over on Transfermarkt.

The XI in full

Wow. You wouldn’t fancy coming up against that team, would you?

The 2022 summer window has the potential to be the craziest ever in terms of free transfers, which is saying something after the madness of 2021, which included Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma all joining PSG on Bosman deals.

Of course, there is still the chance that the players featured above will sign contract extensions at their current clubs.

But it’s also hugely unlikely that all 11 will do so, which means we’re going to see some groundbreaking free transfers in around half a year’s time.

If Mbappe does end up joining Real Madrid, it will be comfortably the most valuable Bosman deal in the sport’s history, eclipsing Messi’s move to PSG.
