Is Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne the best midfielder in the world?

Kevin de Bruyne’s masterclass against Real Madrid has further highlighted the phenomenal quality of the Belgium international who made the likes of Ernesto Valverde, Luka Modric, Isco and Casemiro all look average.

De Bruyne is the upgrade Los Blancos needs to win another Champions League trophy and the look on Florentino Perez {Real Madrid’s president} says it all. He knew from first glance that the 27-year-old was the complete package.

He was faster, stronger and more versatile than all Madrid’s midfielders put together. He combines all facets of the game {speed, technique, daft touches, passes} in an explosive manner and gives end results.

Perez and Zinedine Zidane now know the midfield trio of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro who helped Real Madrid win 3 consecutive Champions League trophies have outlived its usefulness and now needs to be upgraded with an -all round midfielder- like De Bruyne who can defend and attack simultaneously.

To further prove how reliable he is; De Bruyne has played 208 games for Manchester City, scoring 50 goals with 81 assists. He has backed up that incredible stats with 7 trophies.

At the moment, most fans say he sit he best in the world while a few still say Liverpool’s hardworking midfielder Jordan Henderson is better having lifted the Champions League and soon the Premier League title.

But, what they say doesn’t really right now, what matters is what you think. Is De Bruyne the best defender in the world?
