Premier League released XI. Zlatan and not much else…

Date published: Sunday 11th June 2017 9:15

All these players featured on the Premier League’s published list of players not being retained by their clubs…

 

GOALKEEPER: WILLY CABALLERO
The Argentinian shot stopper will provide experience as a back-up option. The 35-year-old is best remembered for saving three spot-kicks in City’s penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool in the 2016 League Cup final. Chelsea are supposedly interested.

 

LEFT-BACK: GAEL CLICHY
The French full-back featured in two title successes and League Cup triumph during his time at City and could be a target for a number of clubs in the Premier League.

 

CENTRE-BACK: JOHN TERRY
Although Terry’s future is yet to be decided – he may quit altogether – several clubs in Europe, China or across the pond would welcome the services of the former England captain.

 

CENTRE-BACK: JOHN O’SHEA
Completing the slowest centre-half partnership of all time, the 36-year-old veteran defender is up for grabs after being released by Sunderland.

 

RIGHT-BACK: BACARY SAGNA
The France international will be one of the more in-demand free agents of this lot. Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Southampton are supposedly sniffing, but the ex-Man City right-back will have options in Europe too.

 

CENTRE MID: MATHIEU FLAMINI
The former Marseille, Arsenal and AC Milan midfielder spent last season at Crystal Palace and is one of 11 players released by the Eagles. The Frenchman may opt to spend more time focusing on his business career, with his biochemicals business supposedly set to make him a billionaire.

 

CENTRE MID: SHAUN MALONEY
A quiet but effective performer, the Scotland international could return to the SPFL, where he’ll probably tear it up.

 

LEFT WING: STEVEN PIENAAR
The former Everton and Tottenham star’s best days are behind him but South African clubs may be lining up to bring the midfielder home.

 

RIGHT WING: JESUS NAVAS
The pacy World Cup-winning winger Navas has a wealth of Premier League experience under his belt having helped the club win the title in 2014. And eyes you could lose yourself in for days.

 

STRIKER: AROUNA KONE
The Ivorian striker made a marginal impact during his time at Everton, scoring 10 times in 62 appearances. Though three of those came in the same game against Sunderland, so, you know…

 

STRIKER: ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC
Having scored 28 goals and helping Manchester United win three trophies in his first season in England, the 35-year-old Swede will be one of football’s most coveted free agents this summer once he recovers from a cruciate ligament injury. Just imagine his disgust when he has to line up alongside this lot…
