The Champions League is brimming with young attacking talent. Here is a closer look at three of the best.
3. Isco – Real Madrid – Spain
The Spanish midfielder is fast. A wonderful picker of passes and a tricky dribbler as well. Isco moved to Real Madrid this summer for £23 million and what a signing it can prove to be.
Not yet in Spain's squad, it will not be long before Isco is challenging players like David Silva and Santi Cazorla for the attacking midfield role, perhaps even by next year’s World Cup.
2. Mario Gotze – Bayern Munich – Germany
One of the most promising young players in the world, Mario Gotze made the move to Bayern Munich from rivals Borussia Dortmund in 2013 for over £30 million.
The 21-year-old made his debut in the 2009/10, coming on in the 88th minute for Jakub Błaszczykowski. He made five appearances that season but was not able to find the net. In the following season he appeared 33 times, grabbing six goals in the process.
In the two following seasons he became a regular for Dortmund contributing to a fantastic season in 2012/13. The German earned himself a move to giants Bayern Munich where an important season awaits for the playmaker.
1. Neymar – Barcelona - Brazil
With fantastic ball control, a ferocious shot and rapid footwork, Neymar is possibly the most promising player on the planet.
Snapped up by Barcelona this summer for £48 million, Neymar is arguably the most skilful player in the world.
After being the main man for Brazil in this summer’s Confederations Cup, Neymar will hope to hit the ground running in Europe and prove he can live up to his potential.
It will be the player's first time competing in Europe's elite competition, providing him with the perfect platform to demonstrate his qualities.
