The 23-year-old Moroccan Hakimi was a rock in 2020/21, making 45 appearances in all competitions for Inter after joining from Real Madrid for €40million. His seven goals, eight assists and countless overlapping forward runs helped Antonio Conte’s side to win the Serie A for the first time in a decade.

Now he’s plying his trade in Paris, alongside the likes of Ramos, Neymar and Mbappe, providing overlapping runs for Messi and Di Maria. Despite the wealth of other superstars in the team, he still manages to shine. He’s still got his best years ahead of him, too.

2. Joao Cancelo

He can play on the left, he can play on the right, and he even pops into central midfield from time to time. Come to think of it, there is very little that Cancelo can’t do. He is good at passing and crossing. He even switches flanks from right-back position to left-back to make the attack more strong.

Cancelo has been one of the best players in the world in any position this season and is a big reason that City have been so good over the past 24 months.

1. Trent Alexander-Arnold

Almost a deep-lying, right-sided playmaker at this stage, Trent Alexander-Arnold has redefined what it is to be a right-back altogether – and no-one does it better

The 23 years old English footballer has already made a big name for himself with his extraordinary performance in the Premier League and Champions League. He has won the UCL and PL with Liverpool in the past couple of seasons, in which he played a crucial role. Arnold is well known for making accurate passes, playing long balls, and making perfect tackles to win the balls from the opponents.
