5 High-Profile Stars That Will Become Free Agents At The End Of The Season

With the 2023 summer transfer window looming, football fans are eagerly anticipating the potential movement of some major players who are nearing the end of their contracts. As the current season draws to a close, the attention shifts to those individuals whose futures remain uncertain.

Without wasting any time, let's take a closer look at five prominent players who will be available as free agents once the 2022/23 season comes to an end;

5. Roberto Firmino (Liverpool)

Liverpool fans bid farewell to Roberto Firmino as manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed his departure from the club as a free agent at the end of the current season. The Brazilian forward has been an integral part of Liverpool's success under Klopp in recent years and has garnered a strong following at Anfield. With 360 appearances for the Reds, Firmino has contributed 109 goals and 79 assists across all competitions.

However, his form has declined in the past couple of seasons, making it unlikely for Liverpool to extend his contract beyond this summer. As a result, Firmino is poised to leave Liverpool and seek a new chapter in his career as a free agent.

4. Milan Skriniar (Inter Milan)

Milan Skriniar's contract with Inter Milan is nearing its end, making him a sought-after free agent. The Slovakian defender has been an important figure for Inter, contributing to their triumphs, including a Serie A title, a Coppa Italia, and a Supercoppa Italiana. Despite negotiations, Skriniar and Inter have failed to reach an agreement on a new deal, leading to his imminent departure from the club as a free agent this summer.

3. Sergio Ramos (Paris Saint-Germain)

Sergio Ramos, the seasoned defender, faces an uncertain future as his contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) expires on June 30, 2023. After a remarkable 16-year tenure with Real Madrid, Ramos joined PSG in 2021 but has been hampered by injuries since his arrival.

Although PSG has not presented a contract offer to Ramos, speculation surrounds the possibility of him leaving the club on a free transfer. While his stature as a player has diminished, Ramos could potentially find a new home at a club aiming for success outside the realm of the Champions League.

2. Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City)

Ilkay Gundogan's future at Manchester City hangs in the balance as he approaches the end of his contract this season. The versatile midfielder has been a pivotal figure for City since his arrival in 2016, winning multiple Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and several League Cups. While City has engaged in negotiations with Gundogan's representatives, no agreement has been reached thus far.

Reports suggest that Gundogan is seeking a two-year deal, while City is inclined to offer only a one-year extension. This discrepancy has attracted interest from other clubs, including Barcelona and Arsenal, with Barcelona reportedly prepared to present a two-year contract if Gundogan becomes a free agent.

1 Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain)

Lionel Messi, one of the greatest footballers of all time, finds himself on the brink of becoming a free agent once again. Since his move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2021, Messi's presence has stirred both admiration and controversy among the PSG fanbase. While he has performed exceptionally well individually, PSG's primary objective of winning the Champions League has remained elusive.

With the current situation, it seems unlikely that PSG will offer Messi a new contract, paving the way for him to become a free agent at the conclusion of this season.
