Donnarumma deserve it for sure but it could go to Dembele, Mbappe or Gabriel Jesus. Emre Mor didn't do anything worthy of mention compared to Dembele and I have no idea what is happening with Tielemans. Lack of playing time is what will hurt Renato Sanchez the most this year. Anyway, thanks for the share Croatian. :D

Tielemans is actually pretty superior to other midfielders in Jupiler league, simply too good for their standards and I hope he will show his true himself to all of Europe once he moves out of Anderlecht. ;)

i think literally everyone who is young and has a name in football is on this list. mbappe will get it. donarumma should also be up there. only those 2. gabriel jesus can't. it's dependent on games played in europe not south america, he hasn't played enough.

@Croatian Wouldn't get a lot of playing time in Bayern Munich though. :( But I hope you are right.

Probably Mbappe, but don't sleep on Tielemans. He's got 18 goals and 11 assists this season.

Edit:

  1. Mbappe
  2. Donarumma
  3. Tielemans
  4. Dolberg
  5. Dembele

Dolberg and Pulisic would be my third and fourth picks.

@Eden17 What about Donnaruma mate, I know he is a keeper but he is impressive. :D Also, good to see buddy, its been too long since I last saw you. :)

Mbappe will win it for sure. But Donarumma has been awesome. He will be the best keeper in the future for sure.

Donnarumma hype has actually stagnated A LOT since Mbappe started actually scoring. Tbh the candidates are clear but no one mentioning Dembele as favorite is bit weird.

@Emo, even Kimmich, Renato and Coman can't get enough playtime in Bayern. Probably because of Ancelotti, Kimmich is just too good to be not even rotation player.

@Croatian You are right, Kimmich is an incredible player, my only problem with Ancelotti is how he doesn't play the younger player, wich is a bit ridiculous when you got a 10 point advance on your direct rival. Does Ancelotti rotate his player enough by the way? Also, yeah, Dembele deserve this as much as M'bappe and Donnaruma in my opinion and maybe even more, he has been superb for Dortmund.

It will be between Mbappe and Donnarumma both deserve the award tbh I can't pick a winner between those two because one scores goals and makes the headlines while the other keeps clean sheets and makes important saves and also makes the headlines.

He almost never rotates that's the problem. He'll put the perfect tactical fit for every game. That's why Kimmich unfortuanely doesn't play much, he proved what he can do in few matches in CL (mostly group stage). There was a bit of rotation before Dortmund match and we've lost to Hoffenheim then. So it didn't leave Ancelotti with good impression.

@Emobot7

Yeah, it's been a while. I've been fairly busy. Donarumma is easily the best young keeper out there, but it's difficult to compare keepers to outfield players. I'd like to see him win the award one year, and I'm sure he will. Looking at his stats, I'd probably place him above Tielemans now.

Tielemans and Donarumma are pretty chill. People are going to be all over Mbappe's nuts for awhile, but the other two would be my recommendations based on literally nothing. I don't watch Belgian soccer, sue me.

@Sunflash I will sue you! Well, at least I would, if I watched Belgian soccer. XD

More seriously, I believe Donarumma, Tielemans, Dembele and M'bappe are the four only possible contender this season. :D

Donnaruma or mbappe for sure , both are crucial to there squad, but mbappe had achieved more . pulisic should be on this poll IMO

yea im not going to rate anyone in the belgium league high. 10 goals there is probably equivalent to 1 goal in a better league. but i might be wrong........i don't watch belgium football lol.

@Gonzi Nah, I think it might more be 10 goal there = 5 goal in a better league. Belgium league isn't that bad, the top team there are propably comparable to the like of mid table team in Serie A. Take Anderlect for exemple, where Tielemans play, they managed to draw against United at home wich is a very good results considering United was the better side in that game. Should help make yourself of the level there. :D

Who chose this? How did De Ligt get there?

I think Mbappe will win it, but I will give it to Donnarumma.

This one performance sums up what he does week in, week out for Milan nowadays. Without him, Milan would be a lot lower.
