11 Most Valuable Free Transfers In Football’s History

Players are beginning to have more power in football and as they use their influence to demand improved terms from their clubs and their clubs refuse to consent to their demands, they run down their contracts and leave the club as free agents. 

This is beneficial to the players as they tend to receive a handsome sum of money as a sign-on fee and command a bigger wage package at their new clubs. All of these happened because their new club didn’t pay any money to their former club for their signatures. 

 In the current transfer window, some expensive free transfer deals have been completed when taking into account the value of the player after becoming a free agent. The likes of Antonio Rudiger, Paul Pogba, and Franck Kessie moved to Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona respectively for free.

However, Lionel Messi’s transfer to Paris Saint-Germain at the beginning of the 2021/22 season is still the most valuable free transfer in the history of football. The Argentine superstar was valued at €80 million after his contract with Barcelona ended. 

Below is the full list of the top 11 most valuable free transfers in football’s history after recent transfers:
