All Footballers From Top Clubs Going To Olympics

With the 2020 Olympic Games around the corner, here are all the footballers who represent the world's biggest clubs who could cross paths with the South African Olympic team, including stars from Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona!

Click through the gallery above to see all the players who play for the world's biggest sides who will participate at the tournament, according to Transfermarkt.

The spectacle's football tournament gets underway on 22 July, with South Africa's Olympic side taking on Japan in their opening clash, and Real Madrid's young playmaker Takefusa Kubo could be in action.

Kubo, 20, is yet to make a senior appearance for Los Blancos since his arrival at the Madrid club in 2019, having been sent out on loan three times: to Mallorca, Villarreal and Getafe.

A centre-back on Manchester City's books, Ko Itakura, could also feature for the Japanese Olympic team. France, meanwhile, have Paris Saint-Germain defender Timothee Pembele and AC Milan defender Pierre Kalulu on their roster.

For Argentina, Atletico Madrid's 20-year-old centre-back Nehuen Perez might be a regular throughout the tournament, but it is Spain's team that is loaded with players from the world's biggest clubs!

Three Real Madrid players will represent the Spanish Olympic side over the course of the next month, while there will also be three Barcelona stars in action, including Pedri, who was one of the standout performers of the 2020 UEFA European Championship.

The 18-year-old started every game for Luis Enrique's Spain at the tournament, after making 52 appearances for the Catalan club in the 2020/21 season.

Arsenal striker Gabriel Martinelli has been selected for Brazil's team, along with senior Selecao international Richarlison, who stars for Everton in the Premier League. Ivory Coast also have some established stars in their ranks, including Manchester United duo Eric Bailly and Amad Diallo.
