With less than 3 months to go until the end of the season, rumors regarding transfers for the next transfer market are beginning to grow in the European media. However, there are players who end their contract with their current clubs, so it is likely that after June they will be seen with another shirt.
In the American continent, there is expectation for the future of players who are stars or regulars in their national teams, because depending on the decision they make, they could run the risk of not being seen by the coaches of their countries anymore, or it could even be the opposite and increase their level.
Due to their career and soccer career, there are names that cause greater curiosity in the sports press and that is why they follow step by step the negotiations and wishes of the players that will be mentioned below:
The Argentine star who arrived in Paris Saint Germain in 2021, from Barcelona, ends his contract on June 30 of this year, so according to FIFA regulations he has been free since January to negotiate with another team. The world champion has the possibility of extending another year with the French club. However, media from the European country affirm that he will not do so and will study the offers he receives to continue his career.
Although Messi's future team is not clear, the Catalan media affirm that Barcelona will make an offer to the Argentine to return, however, in Asia, the United States and other European teams would also be interested in having his services.
In 2021, 'El Tigre' arrived at Rayo Vallecano, where he was joyfully received by the fans of the Madrid team. Although his start in this team was good, scoring 3 goals in his first 3 games in the local league, due to physical discomfort he began to be relegated to the substitute bench.
In the current season, he has scored only two goals, so the Colombian would look for a new challenge in his career. Asia, the United States and even Colombia could be his next destination, although the decision made by the striker and captain of his team will only be known until the middle of the year.

After 8 years wearing the Liverpool shirt, it was learned earlier this year that the Brazilian will not renew his contract with the Anfield team and at the age of 31 he will change clubs. In the last few hours, according to Sport and other Spanish media, Real Madrid would be interested in signing the striker as an alternative to Karim Benzema.
In the English club, the Brazilian won 7 titles, including the Champions League and the Premier League, he has also scored more than 100 goals and has been a protagonist in the trophies won by the team since his arrival.
Angel Di Maria
Despite his good season at Juventus, the Argentine National Team player would not renew his contract with the Italian team. However, it would not be due to his performance, but rather due to administrative decisions by the club to reduce expenses.
Waiting to know his future, the player is concentrating on the final part of the season, where his team is looking for a place in international tournaments, the semifinals of the Italian Cup and the quarterfinals of the Europa League.
After a year in Asian soccer, the Colombian returned to Europe, specifically to Olympiacos, with this club he signed for one season with the option of one more year. Although recently, both parties terminated the contract a couple of weeks before the end of the tournament.
In the current season he played 23 games and scored 5 goals, of these games in only 2 ha he started on the substitute bench, but in 17 games he was substituted.
Juan Guillermo Cuadrado
After more than 6 seasons wearing the Juventus shirt, the 34-year-old Colombian will no longer be in the team. From the club it was confirmed that the player was not going to be renewed, so from June he will be a free player and will be able to sign with any other team.
He came to the 'Vecchia Signora' after a short stint at Chelsea and became a fundamental player in winning Serie A 5 times, the Italian Cup and reaching the Champions League final in the 2016-2017 season.
They are not the only Latin American players who end their contract in the middle of the year, because in this list we can also put: Yerry Mina, Matheus Uribe, Manuel Lanzini, Lucas Moura and Alex Sandro, who even at the last minute could renew with their clubs or definitely continue his career in some other team in the world.
