Gareth Bale
Full of flair, guile and searing pace, the 23-year-old's game has gone from strength to strength since signing from Southampton in 2007. Originally a full back, the Welsh international has been transformed into one of the most feared left wingers in the world. Bale announced himself with an impressive hat-trick against Inter Milan at the San Siro in 2010 and was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year in 2011.
