LONDON – End of season, end of contracts. June 30 generally marks the end of a campaign in European football and represents the completion date of the different links between players and clubs.
However, as this is an atypical year in soccer, some contracts have been extended for a few more weeks due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on world football.
Next, we introduce you to a team of players who end their contract this Wednesday, such as Mario Götze and Edinson Cavani, or in a few weeks, with the end of all competitions, such as Thiago Silva and David Silva.
All the figures are from the Transfermarkt site, and the amount taken into consideration was the one that most involved the name of each footballer, either their market value or the value they moved in a transfer.
The cost of the team, with a formation of 4-3-3, reaches 452 million euros. The most expensive player is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was sold from Inter Milan to Barcelona for 69.5 million euros in 2009.
