Serie A’s free agent bonanza: Top players available from July 1


As June 30 marks the end of many player contracts, Serie A clubs are poised for a flurry of free agent activity starting July 1. This annual event sees numerous high-profile players becoming available without transfer fees, creating exciting opportunities for teams across Italy and beyond.

Inter Milan is set to bid farewell to Juan Cuadrado, Alexis Sanchez, and Stefano Sensi, all of whom played roles in the club’s recent Scudetto triumph. Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri are expected to welcome Porto’s Mehdi Taremi and Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski as free agents.

Juventus face uncertainty with Adrien Rabiot, whose future remains undecided, while Alex Sandro has already said his goodbyes to the Bianconeri faithful.

Milan will see the departures of Simon Kjaer and Olivier Giroud, with the latter already announcing his move to Los Angeles.

In Rome, both Lazio and AS Roma are set to release several key players. Lazio will part ways with Daichi Kamada and Felipe Anderson (who has signed with Palmeiras), while Roma will say goodbye to Leonardo Spinazzola and Rui Patricio.

Fiorentina, under new manager Raffaele Palladino, may see significant changes with Giacomo Bonaventura, Gaetano Castrovilli, and Alfred Duncan all potentially leaving.

Other notable free agents include M’Baye Niang (Empoli), Roberto Pereyra (Udinese), and Darko Lazovic (Verona), all of whom played crucial roles in their teams’ battles against relegation.

The free agent market extends beyond Italy, with players like Joel Matip, Thiago Alcantara (Liverpool), Sergio Ramos (Sevilla), Memphis Depay (Atletico Madrid), Raphael Varane, and Anthony Martial (Manchester United) all becoming available.
