Closing the summer market does not take away all the chances of different football clubs to strengthen, as there is a considerable number of players, even very high quality and experienced at the highest levels, who are without contracts and can join different teams without any problems.
Suffice it to mention a few names, to understand that there are valid options, even after August 31st.
Those who are in the emergency phase of the attack can still trust a well-known name like Mario Mandzukic, who had a contract with Milan for the second half of last season.
He is a free agent, so a credible alternative to reinforce the attack. Even Franck Ribery, who did not renew his contract with Fiorentina, remains free, as does Daniel Sturridge, who left Trabzonspor, Graziano Pelle or Carloz Tevez’s Fernando Llorente.
Clubs looking for experienced midfielders could turn an eye to Senad Lulic, who closed his experience with Lazio on July 1, or Këadëo Asamoah, who will not continue to contribute to Cagliari. Jack shireillshire and Javier Pastore could also be value-added for the intermediate ward.
Among the defenders left without a contract can be mentioned Serge Aurier, Jerome Boateng, Shkodran Mustafi or Eliaquim Mangala, while for the clubs that need goalkeepers, the valid names are Antonio Mirante, who left Roma, or Sergio Romero, who closed adventure with Manchester United.
