Italy legend Gianluigi Buffon could return to Juventus for one final season. He spent just one year with PSG but his contract is up.

Dani Alves has confirmed he is leaving PSG after just two seasons. The Brazilian has been linked with Manchester City in the past while a return to Barcelona hasn’t been ruled out.

Thomas Vermaelen set to leave Barcelona. He joined the Blaugrana in the summer of 2014 and suffered a series of injuries while Douglas featured in just eight Barca games and enjoyed loan spells at Sporting Gijon, Benfica and Silvasspor.

Frozen out in his last year at Chelsea there is little doubt Gary Cahill can still do a job for someone. No shortage of interest from top sides in the Championship but may still think he has Premier League football in him.

Olympique Lyonnais president Jean-Michel Aulas admitted that his club are interested in the signing of Filipe Luis. The 33-year-old has asked to delay any decision on his future until after the Copa America.

Ander Herrera Decided to leave Manchester United at the end of last season, and still yet to announce where he will be playing although PSG and a two-year deal is thought to be close to being signed.

Injuries have blighted Daniel Sturridge’s career in recent years and after leaving Liverpool is going to have to accept he might have to settle for a pay as you play deal if he is to get a Premier League club.

Ben Arfa, 32, left Stade Rennais after one season. Currently, he is without a club and there are not many clubs interested in him.

Arjen Robben is yet to announce his next club after leaving Bayern Munich. He could well retire but a return to Holland hasn’t been ruled out.

Mario Balotelli left Marseille and is looking for someone to give him a chance just a year after winning an international recall. The 28-year-old looks set to return to Italy.

Like Robben, Frank Ribery will leave Bayern Munich before next season. An unlikely move to Sheffield United was mooted but that is not on the cards for the Frenchman.
