Whatever league it may be – Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, or Bundesliga – there are numerous world-class players worth taking into account. But who are currently the top ten global stars?
Virgil van Dijk has established himself as one of the top defensive players in football despite injuries; earning an outstanding 90.0-plus pass-rushing grade each season over his two seasons playing professionally.
1. Lionel Messi
Lionel Messi has been one of the dominant forces since making his competitive debut at age 17. To date, he has earned seven Ballon d’Or awards–two more than Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed.
His talent on and off the pitch is extraordinary, yet even more so in his personal conduct. He has taken money to promote tourism in Saudi Arabia while seeming unaware of that country’s appalling human rights record.

2. Karim Benzema
Karim Benzema currently represents Real Madrid and France national teams. The French striker is well known for his goal-scoring prowess, technical prowess, as well as being adept at dropping deep to link up with midfielders.
At age 25 he has amassed more goals than both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo put together!
3. Neymar Jr.
Neymar is one of the premier forwards in world football. He can score goals, pass defense-splitting passes and take freekicks with equal ease.
He currently represents both Al Hilal in Saudi Pro League and Brazil in FIFA, boasting an overall rating of 89 with high attacking work rates and medium defensive work rates – his dominant foot being right-footed.
4. Kylian Mbappe
Mbappe has been an incredible force since making his debut for PSG and France in 2017. He leads both leagues in goals scored and assists provided, and had perhaps the highlight of his career with leading Les Bleus to World Cup victory this year.
He is an aggressive striker that can create havoc for defenders with his speed and dribbling. Additionally, he’s an accomplished finisher and knows how to feint shots to catch goalkeepers off guard.
5. Sadio Mane
Sadio Mane, one of Liverpool FC and Senegal national team’s premier strikers, set an unprecedented Premier League hat-trick record by scoring three goals in just two minutes and 56 seconds – breaking both titles back-to-back!
Mane is an outstanding all-round player with excellent pace, finishing, and control when at his peak performance. Additionally, he creates numerous chances for Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino on his teammates side.

6. Luka Modric
Modric was one of the main contributors in Croatia’s “second Golden Generation”, helping it qualify for the 2022 World Cup tournament.
On Tuesday, Real Madrid and Manchester City played out a 1-0 Champions League semifinal tie, in which he made one block and two clearances while creating two chances.
7. Eden Hazard
Hazard has never shied away from taking on tough challenges despite his diminutive stature, having played an instrumental role in Lille’s successful 2010-11 league and cup double before joining Chelsea for PS32 Million in summer 2012.
He established himself as a regular starter at Stamford Bridge and won multiple domestic titles before injuries limited his playing time and Real Madrid purchased him for PS130 million in 2021.
8. Roberto Firmino
Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s star striker and an integral component of their lethal front three. The Brazilian is capable of opening up tight defences with eye-catching skill or with deft through balls.
He currently boasts an FC 24 rating of 83, is right-footed and boasts both High Attacking Work Rate and Defensive Work Rate. Born 2 October 1991 in Maceio, Brazil.
9. Axel Witsel
Sauce Gardner may not be one of the more celebrated players on this list, but he remains a valuable component of San Francisco 49ers defense. Last season he led his position in both coverage grade and pass breakups, earning top honors at his position in both categories.
Manchester City midfielder Leroy Sane’s ability to breeze past defenders and his vision on the pitch brings back memories of Zinedine Zidane at his best.
Haaland is an exceptional striker who can score with either foot and from both above the belt. In his first season at Manchester City, he amassed 36 Premier League goals – an astounding figure which makes him a top candidate for the Ballon D’Or award.
He’s a classic number nine, using his substantial frame to hold play up and bring others into it. Additionally, his swift and precise movements help him sneak past defenders.
