Surprisingly, FC Barcelona just adds 1 name to this list.
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.
- 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.
- Sergio Canales
Thanks to Ronaldo, Benzema has become more and more “scary”
“New wind of Barca” almost became a teammate for Ibrahimovic.
- 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.
- 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.
- Luka Modric
Last season, the Croatian middleman contributed 7 assists and 3 goals, thereby showing that his age is just a handful.
- 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.
Casemiro is one of coach Zinedine Zidane’s “inviolable” stars.
- Marcos Llorente
The Spanish middleman became a hero to help Atletico beat Liverpool out of the Champions League last season.
- 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.
