The best midfield in the world

09 Jul 2017

If it were indeed possible, the arrival of Dani Ceballos at Real Madrid has only made their midfield even stronger than before and, undoubtedly, now the best in the world.

Few can argue with such a statement.

Let’s start with those who wrote the headlines last season; Casemiro, Modric and Kroos, the key trident to win the last two Champions Leagues.

All three have proved to be at a superlative level and, most importantly in Madrid, they always show up in the big games.

But there are more, much more.

There’s Isco, whose performances in the final part of 2016/17 were extraordinary.

To bench him again now would be a difficult decision to understand by an Estadio Santiago Bernabeu crowd who adore him.

Mateo Kovacic is another that always excels when required, taking every opportunity he’s been given by Zinedine Zidane with both hands.

Though it appears unlikely he will be around for much longer, at this point, James Rodriguez is still a Real Madrid player.

Marco Asensio has the quality to be a key player and, as if all this was not enough, Madrid will sign the aforementioned Ceballos (who comes to give Modric rest) and Marcos Llorente.

The academy graduate returns after a great season with Alaves and would be the perfect substitute for Casemiro, but we can be assured that the youngster will fight for the position with the Brazilian.

Zidane will have to make the decision to choose who, from several of the best midfielders in the world, will start each game.
