3. Rodrygo (winner)

Look, it will not be nice to see Rodyrgo leave the club. He is a fan favourite and understandably so.

However, Rodrygo would not leave Real Madrid with any bitter feeling, hopefully. Should the transfer be confirmed before the end of the season, he would almost certainly leave with a standing ovation, after his best season in a Real Madrid shirt.

The nature of this sport is that players come and players go. Ageing at 23 years old, Rodrygo is only going to get better. He cannot afford to jeopardise his development by rotting away on the bench, limited to substitute appearances.

Nobody is denying that Rodrygo can fight for his place - He'd put up a great fight as well. However, competing with Vini Jr AND Kylian Mbappe is a fight which could only be won by the best of the best. It's a nice problem to have for everybody except Rodrygo.

It would be great to see the Brazilian go and tear apart the Premier League.


Where do you think Rodrygo will play next season?
