1) Miralem Pjanic (Juventus)
After moving from AS Roma to Juventus last Summer, I was very happy for Pjanic because he has always been one of my favorite soccer players. After discovering him on the game FIFA, I used him in some of my teams. He was a complete beast in the game because of his free-kick ability and his long shots. He is one of the best free-kick takers in the game statistically and he was the best at taking long shots in my opinion. From using him in the video game, I knew I had to watch him play in real life.
After watching a couple of his games playing at Juventus, I was happy at how good he was in real life too. It was pleasantly surprising to see that he was not only good in the video game, but also in real life. With the world record transfer of Paul Pogba to Manchester United, Pjanic is seeing a lot of playing time in the midfield. Currently, Pjanic has already 13 goals and 4 assists for Juventus with more success to surely come. You can buy Pjanic’s Juventus jersey HERE.
2) Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
Leading all of the Premier League in assists with his club, Manchester City, Kevin De Bruyne is a favorite for most soccer fans. Being only 25 years old, the Belgian international has a lot of time to improve his game even more. With the new manager, Pep Guardiola, De Bruyne and Manchester City hope to fight for the Premier League title this year. I have always been a fan of Manchester City and the Belgium national team. Whenever I would see Manchester City playing on tv, I would be rooting for them to win. I started to like the Belgian national team because I used to use them in FIFA. The Belgium national team has young, amazing talent. With attacking players such as Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne will be the man to send them through to score a goal.

3) Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
As some of you could have guessed, Cristiano Ronaldo is my favorite soccer player. The sole reason I am a Real Madrid fan is because of him. Each season, Ronaldo continues to be arguably the best player in the world. After winning the Champions League and the EUROs this year, Ronaldo will be a favorite to win the Ballon d’Or this year. At age 31, Cristiano and his club, Real Madrid, are at currently sitting at the top of the table above rivals Barcelona. Madrid is currently unbeaten and they hope to continue this streak with their tough game this Saturday against Barcelona. Cristiano leads all of La Liga with 10 goals this season and he hopes this will help him on Saturday against Barcelona in the first El Clasico of the season.
