Surprisingly, FC Barcelona just adds 1 name to this list.

  1. Koke

unnamed 300x169 - The La Liga 2020 ranked 10 best middlemen

The Spanish milieu is an irreplaceable element under coach Diego Simeone

Atletico Madrid’s captain excelled in managing the game and regulating his play. In addition, Koke is still strongly interested in defensive support-and coach Simeone is very happy about that. 

  1. Federico Valverde

The Uruguayan was the mainstay of the Los Blancos middle ground until he was injured. While Modric was 35 years old, coach Zinedine Zidane is not too worried about replacing him, because Valverde has made tremendous strides and is happy to succeed him.

  1. Sergio Canales

Thanks to Ronaldo, Benzema has become more and more “scary” 

“New wind of Barca” almost became a teammate for Ibrahimovic. 

  1. Toni Kroos 

The German star also holds the standard of the world’s leading middle class, allowing the Real Madrid middle class to become strong with its excellent technique and sublime vision. High-precision throws that free up doors for teammates are Kroos’ strength points. 

  1. Frenkie De Jong 

While Barca is in decline and sometimes has to play against his castle, De Jong still demonstrates the consistency of the top middle class. The ability to handle the ball, to avoid the amazing and sharp tactical vision, makes the Dutch star an invaluable element under Coach Ronald Koeman.

  1. Luka Modric 

Last season, the Croatian middleman contributed 7 assists and 3 goals, thereby showing that his age is just a handful. 

  1. Dani Parejo

The 31-year-old actor joins Villarreal in the 2019-20 season. He scored 8 goals and gave 3 assists to Valencia in the last season’s 35 La Liga appearances.

  1. Casemiro 

Casemiro is one of coach Zinedine Zidane’s “inviolable” stars. 

  1. Marcos Llorente

The Spanish middleman became a hero to help Atletico beat Liverpool out of the Champions League last season. 

  1. Mikel Merino

The 24-year-old middleman is the centerpiece in the middle to make Real Sociedad travel high in La Liga this season. The keen vision combined with the skillful tactics allowed Merino to become the “transfer station” of Anoeta’s home team.
