Celtic have been linked with a move for Lunin, whose wife has given the green light for him to leave Real Madrid.

Despite being one of Manchester United's standout performers this season, Aaron Wan-Bissaka's future remains uncertain.

The full-back is currently in limbo at Old Trafford with the club stalling on offering him a new deal.

Previous contract talks in the summer failed to find a solution, with United understood to be more likely to trigger a one-year extension instead.

CB – Presnel Kimpembe

Presnel Kimpembe remains sidelined after rupturing his Achilles back in February.

The Paris Saint-Germain defender has missed 31 games since and is yet to sign a new deal with the French giants.

A graduate of the club's academy, Kimpembe has been with PSG for 18 years but was previously offered to Manchester City in the summer.

CB – Mario Hermoso

Spanish defender Mario Hermoso has made 145 appearances and won a league title since joining Atletico Madrid in 2019.

The 28-year-old is yet to pen a new deal, though, and will currently become a free agent in the summer.

Arsenal were long-term admirers prior to his move to the Spanish capital, whilst Tottenham and Saudi side Al-Ahli have also been linked since.

LB – Victor Lindelof

As with Wan-Bissaka, United are also yet to decide whether they will extend Victor Lindelof's contract beyond next summer.

The Swede is able to speak to overseas clubs from the start of January to agree a pre-contract deal for when he becomes a free agent.

Lindelof has made 14 appearances this season, including three at left-back as he covers for the injured Luke Shaw.

CM – Adrien Rabiot

Adrien Rabiot has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for much of the last two years but remains a Juventus player.

The Red Devils are reportedly plotting a cut-price January approach, though, despite Rabiot being available for free at the end of the season.

Rabiot signed a one-year extension last summer and is currently on the radar of several Premier League clubs.

CM – Wilfred Ndidi

After staying with Leicester following their relegation from the Premier League, Wilfred Ndidi remains a key man for the Foxes.

The midfielder had played every match in the Championship this term before picking up a muscle injury during the October international break.

He may leave before his deal expires next summer, though, with Barcelona eyeing a January move to jump the queue for his signature.

CM – Daichi Kamada

Daichi Kamada was one of the most sought after players in Europe as his Frankfurt contract ran down in the summer.

However, he would have to wait until August before signing a one-year deal with Lazio.

Although their is an option to extend the deal by three years, the Japanese midfielder is currently set to be available for free again in 2024.

RW – Nico Williams

Nico Williams has emerged as a promising talent since breaking into the Athletic Bilbao first team and making his senior Spain debut.

The 21-year-old already has six goal involvements this season but is out of contract next summer.

Liverpool and Aston Villa were linked with a summer move, whilst Newcastle have also been tipped as potential suitors in recent weeks.

ST – Alvaro Morata

Having returned to Atletico in 2022 after a two-year loan at Juventus, Alvaro Morata has led the line in prolific fashion for Diego Simeone's side this season.

The Spain striker has 12 goals in 15 matches across all competitions, including three goals against Celtic in the Champions League.

Atletico are yet to offer Morata a new deal, though, following interest from Saudi Arabia back in the summer.

LW – Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe shocked PSG chiefs in the summer as he confirmed he would not be extending his contract beyond 2024.
