Three Players Who Could Emulate CR7 & Messi

In football today, there are only three players who could be regarded up as potential future superstars who could emulate the likes of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, and Blaugrana discusses why and how.

Memphis Depay

The Dutchman has been in spectacular form this season for PSV Eindhoven, scoring 26 goals in 37 games, and perhaps he will only be compared with the best once he has made a move to one of Europe’s elite clubs. Manchester United are reportedly after the 21-year-old, making it no coincidence that he’s been dubbed as the ‘Next Ronaldo’.

Depay has great pace and scoring ability, just like Ronaldo, and I believe that there is plenty to come from this wonderkid.

Neymar

We’re all aware of the great talent that Neymar possesses, and although he was born in the Argentine’s rival nation, the Brazilian may be the one of the few stars in football who can emulate Messi’s brilliance. The 23-year-old teams up with Messi every week for Barcelona, where he continues to learn and grow as a player.

His goal record of 45 goals in 60 games for his country is unbelievable, and if Neymar can find the net consistently for Barca - Real Madrid may fear that they have another Messi on their hands.

Eden Hazard

The Belgian winger has been classed with today’s greats, and has been backed to one day be as effective for Chelsea, as Messi and Ronaldo are for their respective sides. Hazard’s manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that his midfielder is one of the three best players in the world, but I feel that Hazard possibly needs to add more goals to his game in order for that statement to ring true.

Hazard has played 46 times this season, scoring 18 goals and assisting 15 for his teammates at Stamford Bridge.

Do you believe that these stars could become as good as Messi and Ronaldo?
