Top 10 best footballers in the world right now
With Cristiano Ronaldo failing to make it to the top 5, here are the ten best players in the world at the moment
We are already beyond the half-mark of season 2017-18 after witnessing a fair share of excitements, disappointments, joys and sorrows. Ranging from Ronaldo's drop in form to the rise of Kevin De Bruyne, this season is turning out to be equally exhilarating as the previous one.
It has also been a sort of a rollercoaster. While the old guard seems to have diminished a little, new faces have emerged in the game. Some of the best performers from last season have failed to replicate their form this year. Considering the current scenario, a lot of new players have taken the world by storm and it is about time for the list of the best footballers to undergo a change.
That being said, let's have a look at the ten best players in the world at the moment.
#10 David De Gea
David De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world right now, period.
Ever since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down as Manchester United boss, the Spaniard has been their best player through and through, winning the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award thrice since 2014. If it wasn't for him, the humiliation would have become frequent for the Red Devils considering their lacklustre defensive records in the past.
Speaking of the present, the United shot-stopper has maintained the highest number of clean sheets in the league(14). This slide would be incomplete without mentioning that solid performance versus Arsenal where he made a whopping 14 saves, equalling the record for the most saves in a single league game held by Tim Krul and Vito Mannone.
As they have done in the past, Manchester United will once again have to protect David De Gea from the prying eyes of Real Madrid this summer.
