Real Madrid talisman Luka Modric returns to England with the hope of ending the world best duopoly held by Ronaldo and Messi in one decade.
This is the first time since 2007 we would see a list without the inclusion of Lionel Messi who was either second 5-times and first 5-times.
The trios were spectacular in making and unarguably deserves any hierarchical positions.
Christians Ronaldo 33, helped his teammates to win their third successive champions league, which was his 5th UCL in his curriculum before striking a deal worth £99 million with Juventus. However, he was knocked out of the World Cup in the round of 16 but was spot-on against Spain when he scored his first World Cup hat-trick.
Modric was also the joint force in Real Madrid’s champions league victory.
The lads were never going to do without his top-notched crosses and creativity. He also captained his national teammates to their first ever World Cup final, after defeating Messi’s Argentina, Russia and of course England before losing 4:2 to France in the final.
Mo Salah was the man for the future who was always finding the back of the net with every single touch on the pitch.
He recorded 32 goals in 38 League appearances which was long held by Allen Shearer. Albeit, he wasn’t noticeable in Russia but he could be excused as not deemed fit following the controversial rough handling by Sergio Ramos.
If Salah gets the award, he would be the second African player after George Weah to wrap the gift from Africa.
De Gea Is Still A Top Goalkeeper Despite Costly Error
Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart believes that Manchester United shot-stopper David De Gea is still a quality goalkeeper after his mistake during the Manchester Derby clash in the Premier League.
De Gea was largely culpable for the goals scored by Manchester City who won the bragging rights over their neighbors via a 2-0 away win.
The victory ensured that Manchester City did the double over the Red Devils having beaten them 3-1 earlier this season while Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho was still in charge of the team.
Mourinho was sacked and swiftly replaced by former club striker Oleg Gunnar Solskjaer in December.
Joe Hart was a guest at the Sky Sports studios and he came to the defense of David De Gea after the Manchester Derby.
According to him, things are not going the way of the Spanish international at the moment but that does not make him a bad keeper overnight.
After a goalless first half, David De Gea was beaten at his near post by Manchester City forward Bernardo Silva for the first goal of the game before being culpable for the second Manchester City goal scored by substitute Leroy Sane.
The win was enough to send Manchester City to the top of the Premier League table in their quest to win a second straight league title.
Everton ready to land this Chelsea star
Merseyside outfit Everton are reportedly ready to secure the signature of Chelsea star Tammy Abraham in the coming summer transfer window.
Tammy Abraham has been on loan with Championship side Aston Villa and he has been impressing enough with goals to have caught the attention of a number of topflight clubs in England.
So far this season, Tammy Abraham has scored 25 goals in 37 Championship games which were helpful for his team to secure a playoff as they have won their last 10 games which is obviously a club record.
Tammy Abraham has been a Blues player since 2016 but has not been favored for a first-team selection owing to his age and other factors but he has been tipped for a topflight football owing to his feats at the Champions League and he has been tipped to land a move elsewhere if his parent club cannot guarantee him of a first-team football.
Everton are therefore ready to land Tammy Abraham this summer window as there are possibilities that he would not remain with Aston Villa after this season.
Everton have been in great form this season, having defeated a number of top teams in the league and that could be a motivating factor for Tammy Abraham to fancy the move.
Liverpool to return for this Lyon midfielder
Merseyside outfit Lyon are reported to be preparing to return to the French Ligue 1 for the signature of Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.
The manager Jurgen Klopp side were linked with the signature of Houssem Aouar in the last January winter transfer window and it was reported that they had made attempt but a deal failed to fall through.
Liverpool are now set to return for the star player as they are already preparing for the coming season and as a replacement for James Milner, knowing that his stay at the club is no longer guaranteed.
The 20-year-old has been tipped to make a good success at the Anfield as he is currently impressing in the Ligue 1 with Lyon. He is currently interesting a number of top European sides ahead of the coming summer transfer window.
Houssem Aouar has had 32 appearances for Lyon so far this season. It is suggested that this is the best season he has ever had in his career.
However, the Merseyside outfit is hoping to land their first title in about 30 years this season as they are currently in the race for the Premier League title but manager Jurgen Klopp has already begun plans for the coming season.
This star player now prefers Chelsea to Liverpool
It is claimed that Italian Serie A outfit Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne would rather join the West London outfit Chelsea than head to the Merseyside club Liverpool in the coming summer transfer window.
Lorenzo Insigne has been linked with moves to the English Premier Egaue with a number of top clubs in Europe also seeking for his signature but there are indications that Liverpool and Chelsea remain favorites in the deal.
It is suggested that Napoli will have a squad overhaul in the coming summer transfer window after they slipped away from the Europa League ageist Arsenal and Carlo Ancelotti will not seek to work with the stoker again with both having a sour relationship at the moment.
However, Lorenzo Insigne will be available for £60 million with suggestions that the West London outfit will be able to run the deal but they will have to wait until their transfer ban is decided y the Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS.
The Blues team have suffered lack of cutting edge in their attack and there are fears that France international Olivier Giroud could still push for a move away despite the words of manager Maurizio Sarri that he would still remain at the club in the coming season.
Why Mourinho will never return to Chelsea, United
Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho has played down the possibility of returning to his former clubs Chelsea and Man United in the future as he plans to return to management ahead of the coming summer transfer window.
Jose Mourinho was sacked by Man United management in December last year after series of poor results and was replaced by a former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has now been handed a permanent role.
The Portuguese boss has since been without a job but he was reported to have rejected an offer after learning that the club does not have the kind of ambition he seeks for.
Jose Mourinho has been cited in England but has claimed he is not around to manage any Premier League side because it is not an option for him because some players do not like him and will go ahead to call him a bastard.
This is the main reason why he will not seek to work with any of the clubs because they will demand wins but will not want hint o do it in his way but will rather demand other things.
However, he stressed that he has got his record to speak for him, noting that he won the Europa League and the Carabao Cup United.
Chelsea star gets transfer advice on Stamford Bridge return
West London outfit Chelsea star Kurt Zouma has been asked not to return to his parent club but remain at the Merseyside outfit Everton where he is currently enjoying his loan deal.
Kurt Zouma has been impressive for Everton this season and that is why speculations of his return to the Stamford Bridge is being rumored in England.
This is happening after the Blues team were handed a transfer ban which will stop them from registering new players for the next two transfer windows. The club, therefore, ponders on returning some of their on-loan players who are doing well at their various spells.
Gylfi Sigurdsson and Phil Jagielka have both urged Kurt Zouma to continue his development at Goodison Park as he would be guaranteed a regular playing time rather than move to the West London outfit where a starting role is not sure.
Gylfi Sigurdsson noted that he expects Everton to mount pressure on the star player to remain by convincing him on how important he is to the team.
However, manager Maurizio Sarri is yet to make any claim on Kurt Zouma but there are suggestions that the Blues team will not waste any moment to bring him back if any need arises.
Why Chelsea should forget top four
West London ou7tfit Chelsea hero Pat Nevin has assessed his former side and he feels they should forget about finishing in the top-four this season.
The Blues are currently battling to impress under manage Unai Emery but the start of his career at the club was good as he recorded a number of wins before things turned around.
Chelsea are currently in the semi-finals of the Europa League which is their only hope of a title this season but they are still struggling with a Tottenham, Man United and Arsenal over who will represent the English Premier League in the Champions League next season.
The Blues lost out of the competition last season and they are keen to return back but that has seemed difficult as they lost another opportunity to drive in when they played a 2-2 draw against Burnley.
However, the Blues legend claims that he does not believe his former side will fulfill their dream of finishing in the top-four this season, arguing that they lack quality players to make that happen.
Pat Nevin has therefore stated that it would be a difficult next season for the Chelsea team if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season as it is their only hope of landing quality players.
Why Real Madrid are making a major mistake with Hazard
It has been suggested by former player Craig Burley that Belgium international Eden Hazard is not the player he has been rated to be and the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid might not find him worthy of the investment on him.
Craig Burley accused manager Maurizio Sarri of making Eden Hazard a major part of his plan and that has failed especially when he does not deliver.
According to him, Eden Hazard is not Lionel Messi and cannot be able to deliver as expected of him, stressing that he has been overhyped.
Craig Burley lamented that the Blues boss has no other plan B when Eden Hazard is not available to deliver good form and goals and that is the reason why he is suffering a setback in the bid to land a top-four finish.
However, the Belgium international will be joining the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid if reports are to be believed and they have been sounded the same warming on how not to rely on the star player alone.
Meanwhile, manager Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that Eden Hazard cannot replace Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo at the club but admitted that he is a great player who is needed.
EPL title: Why Liverpool need to be concerned
Fears have been raised over Merseyside outfit Liverpool by Alan Shearer ahead a Premier League fixtures against Newcastle at the weekend.
Alan Shearer who knows Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez and his ability is of the opinion that his clash against a former side could have him seek to make a statement.
This, therefore, remains that he could seek for a win against the manager Jurgen Klopp side and that could mean the end of their Premier League title race.
It is no longer news that the reds team are seeking to win their first Premier League title in 29 years but at the moment, they no longer have the key in their hands with defending champions Man City already topping the table with a point clear.
Both teams now have three games to play before the end of the season and that means that the Reds team must win all of their games and hope that the Pep Guardiola team slip off.
Alan Shearer, therefore, stated that it is going to be a difficult one for the Reds team when they face a Rafa Benitez-led team at the weekend.
According to him, it would be difficult for Man City to see any slip owing to their recent form.
Why Chelsea have been cheated with £400,000 weekly wage offer to Hazard
Emerging reports claim that Belgium international Eden Hazard has been offered a £400,000-weekly wage deal in an anticipated move to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid at the end of the season.
The reports claim that talks are already underway and close to conclusion between two sides with Chelsea demanding for a £100 million fee to have the player leave this summer transfer window.
Eden Hazard has also sought to leave the West London outfit after refusing to sign a new deal extension as well as declaring his wish to work under his football idol Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.
Analysts are of the opinion that the Blues team have been cheated in the deal for Eden Hazard as they would have earned more if they had acted fast.
It is suggested that the Red Devils would have been made to pay £250 million to land Eden Hazard rather than the £1000 which is also already being bargained because of the quality he has got but that will no longer happen as he has got just a year left to the end of his contract.
Should the Blues team had agreed to have Eden Hazard leave last summer window, he would have been valued more than £100 million.
