8 Bundesliga Players Whose Contracts Are Nearly Up

To continue the topic of free agents available at the start of the next season, I will be looking at the Bundesliga and what bargains could be had there. After looking at the Premier League and looking at the Bundesliga in this article, I will name a few more free agents from a couple of other leagues to provide an idea of the quality that may well be available this time next year.

1. Robert Lewandowski 

It will be extremely unlikely that Lewandowski will be a free agent this time next year, but if an injury occurs then Borussia Dortmund may have no choice but to keep him throughout the summer. That is a very unlikely scenario, but stranger things have happened.

2. Diego

The Wolfsburg man has been consistently good for the German side since his arrival, but he may well be on the way out of the club. When you’re valued at around £10 million and there’s a chance you could be signed for absolutely nothing, then that’s one hell of bargain.

3. Sebastian Rode

The German is perhaps the youngest free agent there’ll be next summer, as the 23-year-old prepares to leave Eintracht Frankfurt. The defensive midfielder is extremely good at what he does and has been compared to the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Michael Carrick.

4. Rafinha 

The Bayern Munich right-back is a regular for Bayern at the moment, having made 18 appearances in all competitions. However, the Brazilian could well be on the way out of the Bundesliga unless a new contract is offered, which seems unlikely at the moment.

5. Mame Diouf 

The Hannover striker has been one of the side’s better players since arriving in January 2012. With two goals and two assists in seven appearances, he has got stats to support his case for a new contract, or at least a good club to come knocking with an offer. Manchester United fans should remember him.

6. Sebastian Rudy

The German is the same age as Rode and occupies a similar position, but arguably to less effect. However, Rudy is still a good player that would improve any mid-table side in England. Injuries have affected him recently so that may be a barrier.

7. Andreas Beck

Beck is another right-back to add to the list and another solid addition, perfect for any clubs looking for a fullback that can either provide good depth or actually be a helpful starter. Whatever you choose to do with him, he will prove his worth in time.

8. Daniel van Buyten

The big Bayern Munich centre-back could well be up for grabs next summer. If he is, then I would expect someone to try and get him because his experience and leaderhip qualities are strengths that are needed in the modern game. He could even just assist another of Europe’s big clubs from the bench.
