Cavani, 33, will depart as the club's record scorer with 200 goals and 43 assists in 301 games and has firmly repaid the €64-million investment the club forked out to lure him from Napoli in July 2013.

While Silva, who featured 310 times since his €42-million transfer from Milan in 2012, lifted 16 major titles over the past eight seasons.

The South American duo will likely to have a long list of suitors ahead of the 2020/21 season, with the coronavirus pandemic hitting football club's finances hard over the past three months.

Free transfers and swap deals have been tipped to be the main source of negotiations for most club's and amongst those players set to be available, several are from the Premier League.

Manchester City legend David Silva, 34, will see his contract expire at the end of the current campaign and a move to Major League Soccer outfit Miami FC has already been mooted.

Mario Gotze will leave Borussia Dortmund for a second time, while six others footballers from the English top-flight will be looking for new club's which can be seen in the gallery above.
