Premier League

Top 10 midfielders in the world this season so far.

10. David Silva (Manchester City)

In the summer of 2010, he moved to Manchester City and has since appeared in over 400 matches. With them he has won two FA Cups, five League Cups and four Premier League titles. Silva’s decision-making is almost flawless, and his tremendous technique means he’s invariably able to execute those ideas.

Silva has been central to four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and two Community Shield victories. His record of 83 Premier League assists and 745 chances created can't be bettered by any other player since his arrival on these shores.

9. Fabinho (Liverpool)

The former Monaco man is a master at halting opposition attacks, with his astute positioning and rangy frame making him an extremely difficult opponent to get past. Fabinho is worth an estimated $8million (£6million), according to net worth analytics platform Tom Ash. He made his fortune from his stint with Real Madrid Castilla and Monaco. Fabinho is likely set for a satisfying salary with Liverpool.

8. Luka Modric (Real Madrid)

In the current season Luka Modric scored 6 goals. 2 goals in national team( Friendlies, European Championship ). In the club he scored 4 goals ( Champions League, Copa del Rey, La Liga, Audi Cup 1, Champions Cup). Last year was the best of Modric's career, as the Croatian schemer won a third consective Champions League with Madrid, helped his country to their first ever World Cup final and ended the Messi-Ronaldo duopoly by scooping the Ballon d'Or.

Modric experienced something of a post-World Cup hangover, but he's been excellent so far in 2019/20, reminding everyone of his enduring quality. Zinedine Zidane will have to manage his minutes, but Modric remains an integral part of this Real Madrid side, just as he's been since arriving in Spain.

7. Sergio Busquets (Barcelona)

Busquets has never been the most mobile and has shown signs of vulnerability in the last couple of years, but in the correct midfield make-up, the Spain international still has plenty to offer. Sergio Busquets has 2 assists after 33 match days in season 2019/2020. With these statistics he ranks number 485 in the La Liga. He also has a total of 13 chances created. With these statistics he ranks number 219 in the La Liga. There aren't many like him and even fewer who do his job better.

6. Toni Kroos (Real Madrid)

Kroos is Real Madrid’s heartbeat; the player who sets the tempo and makes things tick in the centre of the park. In the current season Toni Kroos scored 8 goals. 3 goals in national team( Friendlies, European Championship ). In the club he scored 5 goals ( Champions League, Copa del Rey, La Liga, Audi Cup 1, Champions Cup). A pass master who rarely gives possession away, the former Bayern Munich midfielder is one of the best distributors on the planet, be it over long or short distances.

5. Miralem Pjanic (Juventus)

Cristiano Ronaldo will be the main man at Juventus for as long as he remains at the club, but there's an argument that Pjanic is actually Maurizio Sarri's most important player. Pjanić scored a total of 3 goals so far this season in the league, which places him at 7th in the Juventus.

He's won Serie A in each of history three full seasons since signing from Roma in 2016, and will now hope to add a Champions League winner's medal to his collection.

4. Bernardo Silva (Manchester City)

The £43m signing from Monaco was snapped up as a wide player originally, but he's shone centrally as well as on the flank at the Etihad. Silva made 51 appearances for Manchester City during the 2018–19 season, scoring 13 goals and adding 14 assists in all competitions. On 24 April 2019, Silva scored the opening goal for City against Manchester United in the Manchester Derby, and the 2–0 win at Old Trafford put his team on top of the league.

3. Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona)

De Jong first came to the attention of a wider audience when clips of him vacating his centre-back position and fearlessly dribbling the ball upfield began to circulate online. The Dutchman was soon moved into his more natural midfield role by Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, just in time for the youngster to inspire the team to Eredivisie glory and a remarkable run to the Champions League semi-finals last term.

De Jong's exceptional displays in 2018/19 earned him a summer switch to Barcelona, where he's immediately made his mark. A terrific passer and intelligent mover, the 22-year-old's standout attribute is his ability to beat the opposition press with some fancy footwork or a quick drop of the shoulder. De Jong's arrival will be felt financially given, according to Goal, he is set to earn 16 million euros net per year. That sum will be distributed in the following way: 10 million net fixed per year, plus six million more in bonuses based on titles won and sporting performances, such as games played.

2. Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

He has become the first Manchester United player to win back to back Premier League Player of the Month awards since Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2006–07 season. Bruno Fernandes has scored 7 Goals and assisted 7 times in 11 games in the Premier League since his transfer in January 2020.

1. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

Creative, powerful, skilful and dynamic, is how you can describe him. The Manchester City man can pass, shoot, dribble, tackle and cross with both foot. He's the key man in a star-studded Manchester City side, as demonstrated by a remarkable return of nine assists in 13 Premier League appearances so far this season.

De Bruyne scored his 50th City goal in all competitions on 26 February 2020 in their 2–1 come from behind victory over Real Madrid in their Champions League Round of 16 clash. He has been enjoying an astonishing season with 11 goals and 18 assists in 33 appearances in the Premier League this season.
