The best Bosman free transfers of 2014: The men your club should sign
Victor Valdes (Barcelona)
Linked with: Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Monaco
The question of where Victor Valdes is going to be playing his football next season has been a hot topic for over a year now. The Spaniard made it clear in January 2013 that he would not be renewing his contract with the Catalan giants and would be looking for a fresh challenge. Those ambitions were dealt a huge blow when Valdes suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage in his knee in Barcelona’s recent 3-0 victory over Celta Vigo. The Spanish international is set to be out for seven months, so whoever signs him will be taking a big risk. Having said that though if he can get back to his best his new club will have one of the world’s best on their hands and unsurprisingly Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Monaco have all been linked.
Aaron Hunt (Werder Bremen)
Linked with: Tottenham Hotspur, Besiktas
If the name Aaron Hunt sounds familiar then it is because he was the man who owned up to diving to prevent his own side being awarded a penalty in a recent Bundesliga match. The other reason his name sounds familiar is because back in 2009 he was heavily courted by the FA on the basis of having an English mother. Hunt rejected the calls and has since represented Germany. He now looks set to leave Werder Bremen after over a decade with the club. Tottenham have been heavily linked to Hunt who is a skilful wide man capable of playing through the centre. He scored 11 times in the Bundesliga last season and has chipped in with four this year. The latest reports suggest he has picked Besiktas over the London side but nothing has been confirmed yet.
