Out of contract players 2023: Who will be the hottest free agents in the soccer world?

As we approach the end of the 2021-22 soccer season, many fans and pundits are already looking ahead to the transfer market and the players whose contracts are set to expire in 2023. With the current state of the global economy, clubs are likely to look for bargains and free transfers, making these out of contract players an attractive proposition. Here are some of the biggest names who could become free agents in 2023:

Lionel Messi: Arguably the best soccer player of all time, Messi`s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in 2023, although there is an option for an additional year. After leaving Barcelona in 2021, Messi has adapted well to life in Paris and has been a key player for PSG. However, if he were to become a free agent, many top clubs around the world would surely be interested in signing him.

Kylian Mbappe: Another PSG star whose contract expires in 2023, Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for quite some time. The French striker has been in scintillating form this season, scoring 14 goals in 16 appearances in Ligue 1. If Mbappe were to become a free agent, he would be one of the hottest properties in world soccer.

Paul Pogba: The Manchester United midfielder`s contract runs until 2022, with an option for an extra year. Pogba has been in great form this season, contributing seven goals and four assists in the Premier League. However, the Frenchman has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain shown interest in signing him.

Antoine Griezmann: The Barcelona forward`s contract expires in 2023, and there have been rumors that the Catalan club could try to sell him before that. Griezmann has been a consistent performer for Barca this season, contributing seven goals and six assists. However, he has also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester United and Chelsea reportedly interested in signing him.

Jadon Sancho: The Borussia Dortmund winger was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer of 2021, but a deal did not materialize. Sancho`s contract with Dortmund expires in 2023, and if he were to become a free agent, many top clubs around the world would surely be interested in signing him. The England international has been in good form this season, with five goals and seven assists in the Bundesliga.

These are just a few of the most high-profile out of contract players in 2023, with many more expected to become available as the end of the season approaches. Clubs will be scouring the market for bargains, and these free agents will be among the most sought-after players in the world. It remains to be seen where they will end up, but one thing is for sure: soccer fans around the world will be keeping a close eye on the transfer market in the coming months.
