Andrea Raggi

The 35-year-old left Monaco last summer and has been a free agent since then. Curiously, he helped his ex-club win both Ligue 2 (2012-13) and Ligue 1 (2016-17). The Italian has also represented clubs like Empoli, Sampdoria and Bologna at different stages of his career.

Micah Richards

The right-back was considered one of the most promising full-backs of his generation. Unfortunately, his chronic injuries stopped him from realising his potential as he retired at 31, having played for Manchester City, Fiorentina and Aston Villa.

Luis Garcia

The winger was a product of Barcelona's academy but he failed to establish himself as a regular player at Camp Nou. In his only season with the senior team, Garcia recorded 24 league matches and five goals. He had played for clubs like Liverpool and Atletico Madrid before retiring in 2016.

David Alaba

The Austrian is perhaps the second-best player to be born on June 24, only behind Barca's captain. Alaba is known for his versatility as he has played at left-back, at centre-back and even as a defensive midfielder throughout his career. Barca have been linked with a move for the 28-year-old but it now looks like he'll continue at Bayern Munich.
