Luka Modric (Real Madrid)
The 31-year-old did not have his best season for ‘Los Blancos’, but like all top players, produced his best when it mattered. Modric was outstanding in the final against Juventus as he provided the assist for Real’s third goal.
Toni Kroos (Real Madrid)
Kroos enjoyed another impressive campaign with Madrid, pulling the strings in the middle of the park right until the end of the season. The Spanish champions would be lost without the man who has proved to be the perfect link between defense and attack.
Casemiro (Real Madrid)
The Brazilian has become one of Europe’s best defensive midfielders in the last two years. He got himself on the score sheet in the final against Juventus and provided cover for Madrid’s back line throughout the entire 2016/17 campaign. What would ‘Los Blancos’ do without him?
