Young talent that is making a lot of noise in the sport. Pogba was named the best young talent in the world cup and has a lot of potential to be the best in the world. He already set his goals on being the best ever and if he continues to develop he can sure be on his way to the top.

Danilo a former Real Madrid and Brazil player said the 3 best players he has played with was Neymar, Isco and Marcelo, describing Marcelo as a top talent.
