The transfer market is upon us and for many fans it is time to say goodbye to their favorite players whose time has come to an end.

Paris Saint German eased to another Ligue 1 title. It was a similar case for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Bayern Munich had to battle several challengers before claiming their 9th Bundesliga title. Juventus too should claim another Serie A title despite not being the best.

Only La Liga has seen a worthy title fight. Barcelona and Real Madrid have been neck to neck throughout the season and only now has Los Blancos edged ahead.

It is time to prepare for the coming season. The dressing rooms have to be reimaged in preparations for the coming season. Which also means their will be exits that no one wants.

Here are four players at the end of their tenures at their respective clubs.

Edinson Cavani

Edinson Cavani has seen it all at Paris Saint Germain. He has been part of their worst nights and their best. He has to endure being second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Neymar Jr.

To his credit, Cavani has suffered through it all without compromising his performances. He leaves Parc Des Princes after seven glorious trophy laden years.


After establishing his legend at Shakhtar Donetsk, Willian became a fan favorite at Chelsea. His six years at Shakhtar pale in comparison to his seven in West London.

The Brazil international is on his way out, leaving Blues’ fans wondering who will claim his seat in the dressing room. Such is the love for him that fans are willing to forgive him even if he joins Tottenham on a free trasnfer.

Adam Lallana

There are very few players from Brendan Rodgers’ reign who have managed to keep their place under Jurgen Klopp. Adam Lallana is one of them.

He is second only to James Milner in the squad, which shows how much he is valued. However, his injury issues has meant that Klopp will be looking elsewhere for reassurances. Probably Curtis Jones.

Javi Martinez

Bayern Munich have already added three new players to their ranks but they stand on losing their most versatile player. Javi Martinez took a pay-cut to join the Bavarian giants. He vacated his preferred holding midfielders’ position to assist at the back.

It cost him playing minutes with the Spanish national team. He has been their engine for the last eight years but is leaving for one last hurrah. A return to Basque country beckons or adventures in Serie A, it remains to be seen.
