2. Real Madrid - Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez
The Champions League winners have one of the strongest squads in Europe and could well be the first club in history to retain the trophy with the amount of talent present at the club.
Although two of the most eminent players like Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria left Santiago Bernabeu, the acquisitions of Toni Kroos and James Rodriquez for a combined fee of €100million could be the appropriate answer to the loss.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti will be targeting Liga title as well having ended last season behind both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
Stars to Watch
Gareth Bale - The Wales international came up with instrumental performances in the Copa del Rey and Champions League finals .A quick-thinking individual, Bale’s decision making on the pitch is top notch and uses his speed incredibly well.
His partnership and link-up play with Cristiano Ronaldo is exquisite and more trophies beckon if he continues with the form he displayed last season.
Cristiano Ronaldo -The Ballon d'Or winner had a forgettable World Cup for Portugal on the back of a successful Champions League campaign of last season. But coming back from injury, Ronaldo would prove why he is regarded as one of the best in the world.
His technical abilities and skills are no match for most players and would only get better as the season progresses.
James Rodriguez -The record signing of 2014-15 season for Los Blancos, Rodriguez became the first Colombian goalscorer for the Galacticos.
The Golden Boot winner of World Cup 2014 would want to prove his worth on the pitch for Real Madrid. Still young at only 23,Rodriguez has time to further improve and be counted among the best.
