With 2020 just around the corner, it’s time to check out the top 10 bunch of football players set to become free agents in the New Year.

In an era dominated by excessive spending in the transfer market, the idea of free agents seems almost impossible to believe in 2020. After all, it’s becoming a common theme for clubs to splash out €100m+ annually on new players.

Setting this trend in motion was the high-profile takeovers of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.

The new owners of these respective clubs have since invested incredible amounts in signing the most talented players. PSG’s €222m capture of Neymar, for example, is the world’s record transfer fee.

Believe it or not, though, clubs can still sign some high-class players on a free transfer these days.

And as we approach the end of 2019, many of them will be free to begin talks with overseas clubs over a summer transfer as they enter the final six months of their respective contracts.

So, without further ado, we give you the top 10 players who will be free agents in 2020.
