The Daily Star has now ranked the Brazil international top of the pile, saying he's the "team's most important player" ahead of Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema.

The newspaper pointed to Casemiro's number of appearances for Zinedine Zidane's side this season and how he "maintains the shape of midfield and adds a more robust element."

The Madrid star has made 34 appearances in La Liga this season as Los Blancos beat fierce rivals Barcelona to the league title.

Kimmich, who is also considered as one of the best right-backs in the world, has often been deployed as a holding midfielder for Bayern Munich.

The Daily Star said that the 25-year-old German star has "been a victim of his own versatility" due to the fact he "excels in multiple positions."

According to the newspaper, Kimmich is "swiftly developing into one of the world's best players."

Atletico Madrid star Thomas and Liverpool star Fabinho finished third and fourth respectively.
