With the exception of Flea, who is allowed to sign with any other team starting at 1.1, quite a few luxury players are facing a fateful decision.
The football world is in tension
Almost always January brings with it quite a few changes and speculations in the world of football.
After a summer heavily affected by the corona virus that has hit economically quite a few clubs around the world, the transfer window that will soon open brings a lot of noise again.
Constantly, every January, players who end a contract in June are vacated and are allowed to negotiate with any team that has wanted their services since 1.1. This year the list includes huge players who are making the matter bigger than ever.
In the list of players who will be able to sign with another team starting this Friday, you can of course find Lionel Messi.
After a stormy summer in which he wanted to leave Barcelona, the flea's future continues to employ millions around the world.
After President Joseph Maria Bartomeu resigned, the flea calmed down and appeared to be waiting to see the results of the presidential election in order to make substantive decisions on his continuation.
Despite all the speculations about leaving, it is very possible that the veteran Argentine will sign a new contract and choose to end his career at the Camp Nou.
PSG and Manchester City are waiting for the word of mouth when a special interview with Messi will be published in Spain tomorrow.
Another one that is considered a particularly hot commodity is the brakeman / defender Bayern Munich - David Alaba, who is in great demand among Europe's luxury clubs, including Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Hansi Flick, the Bavarian coach who has come to a dead end with the player around his contract, has made it clear that he will remain until the end of the season but it is very possible that they will not be able to say no to a generous offer for the Austrian international.
Alaba has been playing for Bayern since 2010 and the fact that he is only 28 years old makes him a huge bargain.
Also on the list is Paul Pogba, who since arriving at Manchester United has not been able to sweep the Red Devils to extraordinary titles.
After his agent, Mino Raiola has visited the Red Devils more than once it seems that the Frenchman will look for another destination in order to re-launch his career.
Real Madrid and Juventus have been mentioned as candidates to take on the 2018 world champion and he is considered one of the most interesting cucumbers in the upcoming window.
Another client of Mino Raiola, the almighty agent who ends his contract at the end of the season is Gianluigi Donaroma, the Milan goalkeeper.
So far Donaroma is a senior partner in the great run of the Rossoneri in the Italian league who of course will not want to lose him for free but the 21-year-old goalkeeper of the Italian national team may want to advance to a luxury club when Tottenham, PSG and several other clubs have expressed a desire to sign him.
The one who has disappeared a bit in recent years and is also considered a particularly interesting target is the Real Madrid-Isco connection.
The 28-year-old player expected to be in a different position at this stage of his career but the lack of chemistry with Zinedine Zidane led to him not seeing many minutes with the Blancos.
Everton and Arsenal were linked to his name when the great talent did not sculpt beyond the Premier League.
A reunion with Carlo Ancelotti in the Magpies, similar to Hamas Rodriguez's move in the summer, will be considered a particularly interesting move.
Giorgini Vinaldom, the English champion with Liverpool is also considered a hot name.
Vinaldom and Mighty Reds are stuck in negotiations over his new contract in light of his high demands and rumors of a move to Barcelona to play under Ronald Koeman seem like a particularly relevant option. Already in the summer it seemed Koeman would do anything to bring the Dutchman to Spain but the Catalans' lack of money torpedoed the move .
