#3 Philippe Coutinho

Coutinho will want to validate his enormous price tag with a good World Cup performance

Position: Attacking midfielder

Philippe Coutinho's widely covered transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona for a fee of €120 made him the second most expensive footballer till date (until Kylian Mbappe signs a permanent deal with PSG)

Over the course of the season, Coutinho played 20 games across all competitions, scoring 12 goals before going on to play 22 games for Barcelona, scoring 10. He also helped Barcelona lift the La Liga and Copa del Rey trophies.

Expect him to link up wonderfully with Neymar and co. to wreak havoc on opposition defenders at the World Cup.
