5. Christian Eriksen(Attacking Midfield) - Tottenham Hotspur

Deemed as one of the most creative attacking midfielders in the EPL(english premier league), Christian Eriksen is a versatile and tricky player. He does very well in tight situations and can pick out a pass very well. At 22 years old he has accomplished a lot on the Dutch team AFC AJAX. He had a great three year spell making 113 appearances and scoring 25 goals between 2010-2013.

In 2013 he then agreed to an 11 million pound transfer to Tottenham bolstering the squad after Gareth Bale's departure to Real Madrid. Eriksen has made 47 appearances and has scored 15 goals so far for Tottenham. He is a deadly player in that Tottenham midfield using his good vision he's able to get out trouble quickly and find a good pass. Tottenham relies on him as one of their main playmakers and he's a very reliable and consistent player to find ways to breakthrough defenses.

Eriksen will be very big in the future as he already has drawn interest from Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, and many other big clubs. It'll be interesting which "big club" he will choose to further his career.

4. Raphael Varane(Center-Back) - Real Madrid

At the age of 21 Raphael Varane has already established himself as a world class defender for both club and country. Signing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, Real Madrid, for 10 millions pounds from the French club Lens, Varane has made himself into a big name. He started his professional career playing for Lens from 2010-2011 before signing for Real Madrid. He made 23 appearances and scored 2 goals for Lens and has made 49 appearances and has scored 1 goal so far for Madrid.

Varane has also impressed the French national team by receiving a national team call up at the age of 19. His stellar performance at the world cup has made him one of the best center backs in the world. He has 17 appearances and 1 goal for the senior national team.

Varane is arguable one of the most promising youth talents in the world. Real Madrid have done a great job with his signing and his development. More first team pay will turn him into a monster of a defender.

3. Mario Gotze(Attacking Midfielder/Winger) - Bayern Munich

Mario Gotze started his professional career with the German club Borussia Dortmund in bundesliga. Between 2009-2013 Gotze scored 22 goals in 83 appearances with the club.

At the time Gotze's release clause had triggered a transfer fee of 37 million pounds, which made him the most expensive German player of all time. Mesut Ozil soon broke that record with a 50 million pound transfer from Spanish giants Real Madrid to Arsenal.

Gotze is just 22 years old and has already been named a future ballon d'or winner along with many more awards. His current coach at Bayern Munich, Pep Guardiola, stated that Gotze is one of his favorite players he has every coached. Gotze already has 16 goals in just 37 appearances for Bayern Munich.

Not only has Gotze shined and developed as a star on the domestic stage, but also on the international level for his country Germany. He managed to break through the ranks in, arguably, the best current international team. He proved his worth, ability, and reliability by scoring the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil against Argentina to win the tournament.

Neymar is also very successful in his international career leading Brazil to win the 2013 Confederations Cup and Olympic Silver Medal in 2012.

1. Eden Hazard(Winger) - Chelsea

The former Lille and now Chelsea winger, Eden Hazard, transferred to Chelsea in 2012 for 32 million pound sterling.
