Top TEN ‘Free Agents’ Still Available for transfer This Summer
Transfer windows are a lot like holidaying in England, a range of exciting possibilities tainted by the inevitable feeling of disappointment. Plus it’s incredibly expensive. Sure Arsene Wenger has surprised us all by purchasing well-known, experienced players and Chelsea have secured 85% of the world’s attacking talent but it’s been awfully quiet elsewhere.
The popular belief that there’s no value in the market anymore isn’t helped when you see the likes of Steven Fletcher are slapped with a £12m price tag. Perhaps the impending Financial Fair Play regulations have effectively castrated Manchester City or maybe the financial crisis at Portsmouth has forced chairmen up and down the country to conveniently ‘lose’ their checkbooks until at least September.
Nevertheless I have taken it upon myself to save the day by creating a portfolio of the best free agents this summer. That’s right, these players will cost your team absolutely nothing. Aside from their wages of course, signing on fees, plus a chunk of change for their agents and any financial incentives that revolve around appearances, goals and the frankly laughable ‘loyalty bonus’.
