The End Of An Era In European Football

It’s unclear exactly when European football will be able to return, but in the future, specifically from now until the summer of 2021, there will be a large number of stars ending their careers at the club they used to be a key factor.

What will happen with football players?

In other words, that is the end of European football. There are many reasons for this, which is the contract maturity, or they may retire after a long time of non-stop dedication. Players who are familiar with the number associated with their names will probably go a long way.

Starting with Barcelona and Real Madrid, both clubs have pillars about to expire in 2021. Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi are two typical cases, but there is no guarantee they will continue to stick with Real and Barca respectively when the contract expires.

The retention of these two stars will sooner or later, despite Ramos is 34 years old and Messi is about to turn 33. However, a new long-term contract is unlikely. Besides Ramos and Messi, there are many other famous names facing the uncertain future ahead.

Luka Modric (Real) and Luis Suarez (Barca) may continue to stick with their club in the 2020/21 season, but things then promise to be complicated. The reigning World Cup runner-up is almost 36 years old, while the former Liverpool striker is at the age of 34.

Along with Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal will enter the final year of their contract with Barca this summer. Reportedly, both of these midfielders are listed as Barca’s sellable list, of which Rakitic is currently in the sights of Atletico Madrid, so it is likely that the end of the six seasons for Nou Camp will be terminated.

In contrast, Vidal has only spent the second season at Barca, but he himself is a player with a strong personality in the dressing room, who threatened to move to Inter in January.

At Real, there is one player Zinedine Zidane loves to expire, Lucas Vazquez. The winger has spent five years with Real, winning 3 Champions League and 1 La Liga, but in the final year of his contract, he will have to compete fiercely with Rodrygo, Reinier, Vinicius and Eden Hazard.

Vazquez’s teammate James Rodriguez wasted a season at Real, so he will likely find a new home in the summer of 2020.

At Atletico Madrid, Diego Costa will enter the final year of his contract this summer. The Brazilian-born striker is a veteran warrior of Rojiblancos, and whether successful or unsuccessful, he will surely give up his familiar red and white shirt instead of staying.

How about European football tournaments?

In other top European football tournaments, a transfer is also taking place. At Bayern Munich, five players will expire in the summer of 2021, including David Alaba, Manuel Neuer, Thiago Alcantara, Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez. They are more likely to leave to make room for the younger and more richer adjacent class.

In the UK, many stars will end their long time playing this summer or next summer. The start was Man City, when midfielder David Silva confirmed he would leave Etihad this summer, while key striker Sergio Aguero was only signed until 2021.

At Chelsea, Pedro and Willian will bid farewell to the team this summer. Mesut Oezil’s contract with Arsenal will end in 2021, while Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic will also become free players after the end of their contract with Man United next year.
