A few soccer stars are still in contact with their agents while they wait to be released from the unemployment line. June 30 was the date that contracts signed by stars such as Dybala, Luis Suarez and Dembele, Isco, Marcelo and Isco expired.
All of these players are now free agents, and the market for their services is interesting for clubs who bid. In some cases, it's not about bargains. Although you don't have to transfer any money, you will need to increase your salaries to compensate for the transfer premium. This has led to a new trend: the player who decides to end the club link and leave with the letter in his hand.
Seventy-seven of the footballers who participated last season in First Division had their contracts terminated on June 30, 2017. Some were paid weeks or even months in advance by the entity they signed. For example, Luka Modric from Real Madrid, Sergi Roberto from Barca, Claudio Bravo of Betis, and David Silva from 'txuri-urdin' were all renewed. Some people closed down a stage in order to open another one, without ever having to leave the League or pay a payroll. Joselu, an Alaves player, will be opening Espanyol's new stage with Raul de Tomas and Brian Olivan. Olivan is responsible for changing the vermilion in Mallorca to the blue and white parakeets. There are still others who remain in uncertainty.
This position is occupied by three of the most powerful players in the Spanish championship, Marcelo Isco, Luis Suarez and Isco. Real Madrid's royal European cycle, which runs from Decima to Decimotercera in Europe, was led by the Brazilian winger and Malaga's midfielder. However, after the final in Kiev, they experienced a sharp decline that gave them a residual position in the Decimotuarta. They are now looking for an opportunity to prove that they still have a lot more football in their hands, being 34 and 30 years respectively.
Fenerbahce is interested in the Fluminense former player. Valladolid is chaired by Ronaldo Nazario. However, he prefers not to leave the Community of Madrid which places Getafe, Rayo and Rayo on its board. Betis and Seville are fighting for Benalmadena's midfielder, with Betis and Julen Lopetegui leading the teams. Galatasaray and Roma have also approached the Andalusian, but they intend to stay in the League.

Luis Suarez will, however, abandon the bull's skin after six campaigns of spreading gunpowder at Barca as well as two more shooting goals using Atletico's elastic. El Pistolero is seeking a new challenge as he prepares for the World Cup Qatar. River Plate, despite his original intention to stay in Europe, is best placed to integrate him into their ranks.
Rocambolesca refers to Dembele's situation. The French winger, who quit months ago due to salary demands and the harsh financial realities of Barca, doesn't find an 'entente Cordiale' with Joan Laporta. They are bound by LaLiga rules. Bayern, PSG, and Chelsea remain on hold. By the way, the azulgranas depend on the famed levers to announce signings by the Danish Andreas Christensen (Ivorian Franck Kssie), free after leaving Chelsea or Milan.
The cases of Dybala and Pogba are the most prominent, outside of the Spanish League. Manchester United signed the French midfielder as the main protagonist in the most expensive signing ever made. They paid 105 million euros for him to leave Juventus. Six years later, Vecchia Signora has arranged to retrieve him, without paying even a pound to the Red Devils.
Dybala is leaving Juventus because Inter wants him to join Romelu Lukaku and take over the Milan throne. Although Dybala had all the necessary paperwork to move to Giuseppe Meazza in Argentina, the 'Nerazzurri club' needs to pay the salary bills before Dybala joins them. Teams like Sevilla also keep the radar active to ensure that Madrid's summer operations are successful. The series is a
