Players Out Of Contract At The End Of This Month

Many footballers' contracts will expire in 30 days' time, so we had a look at some of the biggest names who will become free agents at the end of the month, including one of Orlando Pirates' longest-serving players.

Click through the gallery above to see some players whose contracts will expire at the end of June.

Amid uncertainty about several players' futures, with many of their deals set to end before the 2019/20 campaign will be completed, it remains to be seen how clubs will handle these situations.

The Bundesliga resumed in mid-May, with the aim of completing its campaign before the end of June in order to avoid legal battles between clubs and players.

However, the Premier League, LaLiga and Serie A, as well as many other leagues worldwide, will find themselves in grey areas with the 2019/20 season set to be completed only after some of their stars' contracts expire.

England's top flight has announced that clubs will be allowed to enter into short-term agreements with those players whose deals will run out at the end of this month.

So far, though, few EPL teams have confirmed such deals, with the likes of Chelsea duo Willian and Pedro Rodriguez, and Manchester City's David Silva set to become free agents after 30 June at this stage.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's deal with AC Milan and Dries Mertens' Napoli contract are also set to expire in 30 days' time.

French clubs, though, do not have this issue as the league campaign was cancelled last month, with Paris Saint-Germain being named Ligue 1 champions. PSG are yet to decide on Thomas Meunier, Layvin Kurzawa, Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani's futures, but all four seem likely to leave the club at the end of June.
