Four France Players Without Boot Contract?

If you are interested in French football and like to watch matches of the French national team, you surely have noticed that some players have switched their boots reguarly in the past few months - this is because the boot deals of several France national players ended in Summer 2020.

The reason for players to not wear the latest boots / blackout boots is most often the same - their contracts have ended.
