9) Paul Pogba – France
In fairness Pogba was very young when he left Manchester United, but never proved himself in England nonetheless. He wasn’t given the playing time he felt he deserved, and so looked for first team football elsewhere.
At just 21-years-old he is already one of the best midfielders in the world, and his unbelievable rise to stardom has already seen him cement a place in the France squad.
He was named the Best Young Player at the World Cup in Brazil this summer after a number of superb performances.
