Kevin De Bruyne is widely recognised as one of the best, if not the best, playmaker in the entire Premier League. Last season he was the best player for the best team in the best league in the world. His incredible vision and all-round ability should be recognised globally, and should he keep this form up for the coming years, he will undoubtedly be in the running for the Ballon d'Or before long.

The 27 year old has not only proved himself in English football, he has stepped up on the biggest stage of them all, acting as a major reason Belgium reached the semi final of the 2018 World Cup.

As a replacement for Ronaldo at Madrid, KDB would score goals, provide countless assists, act as a set piece specialist, and possibly most importantly, form one of the most dangerous midfield partnerships in the world with World Cup finalist Luka Modric.

Again, Madrid would have to fork out an absurd amount of cash to procure the Belgian's services, but with a seemingly endless pot of gold to pull from, they could do a lot worse.
