Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the first name to catch the eye on the Premier League’s list of released players.
The Swede’s knee injury means he will not be offered a new contract by Manchester United at the end of a season in which he top-scored for the club.
Ibra is undoubtedly the most high-profile player not to be kept on, but there are several others who shouldn’t have too many problems finding a new club.
Joe Ledley, Mathieu Flamini, and Frazier Campbell are on their way out of Crystal Palace.
Campbell hasn’t made an impact with the Eagles, but someone out there must remember his impressive form as a youngster for Manchester United and Tottenham.
Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna are another two who will be hoping their previous exploits can earn them new deals. Manchester City have let the pair go as Pep Guardiola looks to rejuvenate his defence, but they could still do a job at a lower-half Premier League side.
There are a few gambles too. Alex Bruce and Arouna Kone are available, while Tottenham youngster Filip Lesniak has been unable to prove himself to Mauricio Pochettino after featuring against Leicester and Hull in the final two games of the season.
