Gareth Bale marginally pips Van Persie to the top spot after a ridiculously good season for Tottenham.
His performances were so impressive, in fact, that Spanish giants Real Madrid now look set to sign him for a new world-record fee before the transfer window closes.
Bale can do the lot: shoot, pass, head, volley, sprint and much, much more.
When he's on form - which tends to be every match - he's virtually impossible to stop.
Arguably the second best left-footed player in the world behind Messi right now, expect him to get better and better.
