Top 5 players in the world based on their performances this season
The 2017-2018 season reached it concluding stage and most of the big leagues across Europe are almost over. Indeed, this season saw many surprises with new talents, transfer successes and so on across all the top five leagues in the world.
Players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi continued to charm the fans with their performances and the names like Mohamed Salah and Kevin de Bruyne dominated their respective leagues and emerged as new global superstars.
The World Cup is just around the corner and there are a few players who will get much of the attention after their performances this season.
Right on this note, here is a list of the top five best players in the world based on their performances in the 2017-2018 season.
#5 Kevin de Bruyne
Kevin De Bruyne is one of the many players who will keep haunting Chelsea for selling him. The Belgian international failed to impress at Stamford Bridge and the club eventually sold him to Wolfsburg in 2014 after loaning him to Wender Bremen a year before.
He revived his career in the Bundesliga and won the Bundesliga Player of the Year award during the 2014-2015 season. His brilliant performances for Wolfsburg caught the attention of the money-rich, Manchester City and they gave him a second chance in the PL by signing him in 2015.
The Belgian international is the main source of creativity for the Cityzens and the former Chelsea midfielder already created 16 assists this term, alongside eight Premier League goals. He loves to take control of the game and naturally dictates the play for Manchester City going forward.
He was ranked as the fourth-best footballer by the English newspaper, The Guardian in 2017. With Pep Guardiola in charge of the Premier League champions, City, the future is certainly looking bright for de Bruyne and his fellow teammates.
