Zlatan Ibrahimovic has the talent (and the ego) to compete with Messi and Ronaldo for the top spot.
But Zlatan's ego is not always a good thing, and his poor effort keeps him out of the battle for the top spot altogether.
That said, his exquisite technique on the ball and the power his 1.95 meters frame gives him puts him above Eto'o and any other player on this list with ease.
When Zlatan wants to be the best, he just is.
The problem is, he knows this all too well.
Milan loves him and has handed him the spotlight. As long as they love Zlatan, he'll love them back.
Is he worth €49 million plus Eto'o, or €24 million? Frankly, I'm confused, so you decide.
