    Personally KDB is high up the list, Kante, Silva, Xhaka are high up too.

    I'd give the award to Pogba so far though. :rofl:

    KDB. (He plays CM too for City as B2B force of nature)

    Seriously, I think the guy has the technique and physical attributes of a Zidane. He has everything. I would even say he is better than Kroos and I will stand by my statement, he's a more complete player. He needs to play a big part in winning big ears to be considered among the second table of greats (first table being Messi and Maradona) but he has it in his capacity to get there.

    Guy is a class or two above the likes of Ozil who is a pretty limited player although excellent at what he does.

    All of this will be pretty evident in a year or two.

    Its hard to compare KDB and Ozil, although they play in similar positions their style of play is completely different.

    Whilst Ozil doesn't have great pace or physicality, he's streaks ahead of everyone else in the league in terms of vision, passing and ball control. He would've had 30+ assist in the league last year if Arsenal had a finisher.

    Ozil excels brilliantly in a limited skillset, he is great at that skillset but imo he will never be a Bergkamp because he is limited.

    It's the fact that KDB is so well rounded that marks him out as something special and a rarity.

    True.

    Hopefully he stays fit and shows United what a world class CM looks like

    I rate Dembele and Fabregas (when he can be bothered) highly as well as what is mentioned.

    Hmm, looking at this thread now. Pogba's obviously improved like people expected but unsure who is the best? I think it has to be De Bruyne for me.

    I think there are 3 different types of CMs to be honest. I'd argue these are the best in their roles:
    Defensive CM:
    1. Kante, prove him self at two clubs and has amazing strength (especially for his height) -'d reads the game superbly.
    2. Dembele
    3. Dier
    Box to box CM:
    1. KBD, fantastic work rate and ability across all areas involved in playing as a traditional CM.
    2. Pogba
    3. Alli
    Attcking CM
    1. Ozil, arguably a luxury player but undoubtly technically gifted.
    2. Silva
    3. Payet

    Overall: is currently says Kante but it is hard to compare.
