Footballers who could outscore Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo this season

  1. Mauro Icardi:

The Argentine was strongly rumoured to leave Inter Milan this summer and join one of the top European clubs but surprisingly nothing has happened till date. Icardi with his clinical finishing, sharp instincts in the box, is one of the finest strikers when on song. The Serie A will be a very good competition to witness this season and with the form Icardi was in last season and the excellent transfer window Inter has had this summer, the Argentine can very well score plenty this season, may be even more than Messi and Ronaldo.

  1. Robert Lewandowski:

The Polish striker didn’t have the best of times at the 2018 World Cup in Russia but there’s no denying about his capabilities. Lewandowski scored 40 goals for Bayern Munich in 47 appearances in all competitions. It was an impressive achievement and we can expect the former Borussia Dortmund striker to only get better this time around. He is arguably one of the best strikers in the world right now and has the ability to score more goals than what Messi and Ronaldo can this season.

  1. Neymar Jr.:

The Brazilian captain struggled with consistency in Russia this year and will be inching to get back to his best at club level. The Paris Saint Germain attacker has a good amount of support around him which should help him get more freedom to create and assist his teammates. That being said, it will also unleash the beast of a player he is and we can expect Neymar to score a lot more goals than what he has done till date.

  1. Harry Kane:

The English captain is off and running in the Premier League and most importantly he has scored in August this season. Kane has been one of the most consistent strikers in the Premier League and it comes as no surprise that he is Spurs’ best player by quite a distance. Given his record in England, Kane is once again touted to challenge for the Golden Boot in the league and if things go very well this season, he might even go on to score more than Ronaldo and Messi.

  1. Mohamed Salah:

The Egyptian was very instrumental last season for Liverpool, helping the Reds to reach the final of the Champions League and also have a fruitful Premier League campaign. He scored 43 goals in all competitions, out of which 32 came in the Premier league. Jurgen Klopp will be looking up to Salah to make the difference once again this season and if the former Roma man can built on his form from last season, he can definitely beat the likes of Ronaldo and Messi for the amount of goals scored.
