3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has arguably enjoyed the most memorable year of his incredible, nomadic career during 2013, a year which has included 27 league goals and a series of sensational strikes for club and country.

Ibrahimovic scored 30 times for PSG last season to help the big-spending French giants claim their first Ligue 1 title for 19 years, while also netting a memorable four-goal haul in one game in this season's Champions League against Anderlecht.

The 32-year-old may be missing out on next summer's World Cup but continues to play with a swagger and style that backs up his remarkable self-confidence, ranking him as the best out-and-out centre forward in world football at this moment in time.
