We have recently secured the signature of James Milner on a free transfer, and have seen first hand the benefit of monitoring a player’s contract situation closely. There are a number of players coming to the end of their current contracts at their respective clubs, and we may well be able to pick up some more bargains – either now or in the future.
Here are the eight best players with just a year left on their current contracts:
The youngest of the Alcantara brothers, Rafinha currently plays for Barcelona as an attacking midfielder. The youngster is incredibly talented, but arguably doesn’t quite fit into the Barcelona style of play. He looks like he has an incredibly bright future ahead of him, but it doesn’t look certain to be at the Nou Camp.
7) Alex Sandro
A highly rated left-back, the Brazilian has been excellent since making the switch to FC Porto. The club have mysteriously let him get into the final year of his contract, and he could prove an excellent signing.
He has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past (via The Telegraph), and for the right price we shouldn’t overlook him.
