Andreas Christensen (Chelsea)

Christensen is currently injured and we are nowt aware of his return date yet. What we do know though is that Chelsea has not come up with a contract that would suit the Champions League winner’s plans.

Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea)

The German international might have rejected offers from Chelsea as he is getting swayed away by offers from Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Thiago Silva (Chelsea)

The 37-year old Brazilian is waiting to hear from his club about a new contract and that is making fans quite restless because of the class the man brings whenever he plays.

Cesar Azplicueta (Chelsea)

The Spaniard also doesn’t seem to be a part of Chelsea’s plans for next season as they have Reece James to rely on heavily.

Midfield

Paul Pogba (Man United)

Pogba delivers whenever his team needs him but his tenure at United might just reach and end as PSG and Juventus seem to be interested in signing the Frenchman in the summer.

Axel Witsel (Dortmund)

The Belgian turns 33 in a few days and always manages to impress whenever he steps on to the football pitch for club and country.

The Welsh captain was once regarded as the fastest man on the pitch, along with being one of the best players in the world. But the last few years have seen his career go downhill because of injuries and we don’t know if he will continue to play or hang his boots at 32.

Forwards

Kylian Mbappe (PSG)

The 23-year old superstar is one player who would make it to the “to buy” list of any major European club at the moment. But Real Madrid seems to be his first choice as he has rejected six new contract offers from PSG.

Paulo Dybala (Juventus)

Argentine’s Dybala’s time at Juventus might also come to a close with Man United and Tottenham the two main clubs that were targeting “La Joya”.

Ousmane Dembele (FC Barcelona)

Another player whose career was bogged down by injuries, Dembele did not accept Barca’s new offer and we are most likely going to see him play elsewhere next season.
