Robert Lewandowski: Bayern Munich
Over the last three years, Robert Lewandowski has established himself as the best striker in the world, reaching heights that only a few players have achieved. Lewandowski has been a major cause for Bayern Munich’s recent dominance in the footballing world and based on his current form, he does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
Erling Haaland: Borussia Dortmund

Kylian Mbappe: Paris Saint-Germain
KylianMbappe, who is expected to win the Ballon d’Or award in the future, has already demonstrated why he is so highly regarded by helping France to the 2018 World Cup victory and flourishing for Paris Saint-Germain. PSG is desperate to keep hold of the 22-year-old, who has 138 goals in 184 games for the club, yet it appears that he will join Real Madrid next summer.
Harry Kane: Tottenham Hotspur
Although Harry Kane has had a bad start to the season, he has been perhaps the finest striker in the Premier League for the past seven seasons. The England captain has already scored 228 goals for Tottenham Hotspur, and it will be intriguing to see if he can secure the transfer he desires next summer.
Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the summer after a 12-year absence, and it is reasonable to say that he has been a success thus far, scoring six goals in nine matches. Many have predicted that United will fight for trophies this season as a result of the 36-year-arrival, old’s and it will be interesting to see if the Portugal legend can lead them to glory by the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
