LIONEL MESSI is currently unemployed – and he is joined by a clutch of world class stars available on a FREE.
The six-time Balon d'Or winner's Barcelona contract expired at midnight, and there has been no announcement that a new deal is in place.
Manchester City have been constantly linked with a sensational move to bring Messi to the Premier League ever since he slapped in a transfer request last summer.
Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain would also be keen to pull off a major coup – but all clubs would have to meet his £2.4MILLION-a-week pay cheque.
There are some other serious bargains to be found in the free transfer market with contracts expired at midnight. You'd be able to make a pretty decent XI.
Gianluigi Donnarumma has now left AC Milan and at 22-years-old it wouldbe a major coup for a club to get him.
PSG are believed to be close to agreeing a five-year contract for the stopper.
At centre-half, how about the uncompromising pairing of Giorgio Chiellini and Sergio Ramos.
Chiellini is tipped to agree a new deal at Juventus – but nothing has been sorted yet. He is currently starring for Italy at Euro 2020.
Ramos surprisingly failed to make Spain's Euros squad – and then even more surprisingly announced he will leave Real Madrid.

The 32-year-old was released by Bayern Munich but still says he will 'compete at the top level'.
PSG are believed to be front-runners for his signature.
Jerome Boateng would slot in at right-back, but could shift into a back three alongside Ramos and Chiellini.
At left-back comes in another Euro 2020 star in Patrick van Aanholt. The 30-year-old was a starter for Holland before they were dumped out by the Czech Republic.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have surprisingly being linked with Van Aanholt after his release by Crystal Palace.
Jack Wilshere has still failed to fulfil his potential and is available on a free after his release from Bournemouth.
And Gaston Ramirez's four-year spell at Sampdoria is over. The Uruguayan managed tio re-invent himself following a disappointing time in the UK with Southampton, Hull and Middlesbrough.
Juan Mata would provide the creativity and guile in the starting XI. Although there have been talks that a new deal at Manchester United is close, nothing has been announced.
Messi is the star man in the team. The football world was shocked when he handed in a transfer request last summer.
After some dramatic talks, he withdrew this and went on to star yet again for them this season. But nothing has been agreed.
On the left of the attack is Franck Ribery. At 38-years-old he might not be at the level he once was, but the Frenchman has impressed at Fiorentina the last two seasons.
Leading the line is former Manchester City Stevan Jovetic.
The 31-year-old is out of contract at Monaco having spent the last four seasons there, scoring 18 goals in 61 games.
