2024 Football Free Agents: Mbappé, Barco, Rabiot, Dier


The list of high-profile football players with contracts set to expire in the summer of 2024 is capturing attention. Although not as extensive as the previous year, the impending free agency of notable players like Kylian Mbappé, Adrien Rabiot, and others adds intrigue to the football landscape.

Kylian Mbappé’s situation remains uncertain, with ongoing talks about a potential move to Real Madrid, despite recent suggestions of a new deal. Other players entering the final year of their contracts include veterans Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, as well as promising talents like Valentín Barco and Lloyd Kelly.

Here’s a closer look at some of the players whose futures hang in the balance:

  1. Kylian Mbappé (24, FW, Paris Saint-Germain):
  • The saga surrounding Mbappé’s future took center stage last summer. Despite signing a three-year deal in 2022, recent revelations indicate a two-year contract with an optional third year. Mbappé expressed the desire to leave, but a world-record bid from Al Hilal was rejected. While he agreed to new terms with PSG, a potential move to Real Madrid is still on the horizon.
  1. Adrien Rabiot (28, CM, Juventus):
  • Rabiot’s future at Juventus remains uncertain. Despite signing a one-year extension in June, discussions about a long-term commitment are ongoing. A key player for Juventus, Rabiot’s performances make him a sought-after asset.
  1. Luka Modric (37, CM, Real Madrid):
  • Modric, at 37, continues to impress at Real Madrid. However, increased competition for midfield spots may lead to a decision to extend his career elsewhere. The Croatian midfielder’s playing time and future are topics of speculation.
  1. Valentín Barco (19, LB, Boca Juniors):
  • A rising star, Barco’s contract with Boca Juniors expires in December 2024. The young left-back has attracted interest from top clubs, including Brighton, Man City, Chelsea, and Liverpool. His potential signing could include renegotiated terms and a higher release clause.
  1. Piotr Zielinski (29, CM, Napoli):
  • Zielinski, a key player for Napoli, seeks improved contract terms as negotiations continue. Inter Milan is closely monitoring the situation, eyeing a potential free transfer. Napoli faces the challenge of retaining the midfielder or risk losing him without a transfer fee.
  1. Lloyd Kelly (25, LB/CB, Bournemouth):
  • Bournemouth faces the risk of losing versatile defender Lloyd Kelly for free. After rejecting a substantial offer from Tottenham, interest from AC Milan, Liverpool, and Newcastle United adds pressure. January represents the last opportunity for Bournemouth to secure a transfer fee.
  1. Eric Dier (29, CB, Tottenham):
  • Dier’s future at Tottenham appears uncertain under new manager Ange Postecoglou. Limited game time raises the possibility of Dier running down his contract and leaving on a free transfer. Interest from Bayern, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, and Fulham adds further intrigue.
  1. Thiago (32, CM, Liverpool):
  • Liverpool’s midfield overhaul leaves Thiago’s future in doubt. Injuries have impacted his contributions, and a potential move to the Saudi Pro League could materialize, following a trend of players departing from Anfield.

As the football world awaits decisions from these players, the upcoming months promise transfer drama and strategic moves from clubs aiming to secure valuable assets.
