Another of La Liga's best midfielders may have been lost last summer when Santi Cazorla followed the likes of Juan Mata and David Silva to England, but there are still plenty of elite players in Spain.
In fact, when it comes to midfield talent, there are few leagues that can compete with La Primera Division's ability to grow, produce and develop players into some of the world's best.
This list will rank the top seven attacking midfielders in La Liga this season.
Players like Xavi who play a more reserved playmaking role will not be considered here.
The duties and roles of those two players, specifically, are too different to relly be comparable to oter true midfielders.
Please let us know if there are other players you would have included here instead.
