Description:

Messi
Lionel Messi is the greatest footballer of our time: a magician with uncanny ability to beat defenders, find space and score goals. At the peak of his powers during Barcelona's 2015 treble win - a decade on from his first Spanish title - the four-time Ballon d'Or winner has again eclipsed his rivals and proved emphatically that he has no intention of surrendering his crown just yet. Messi is Luca Caioli's classic portrait of modern football's star turn, now fully updated to include all the action from 2014/15. Featuring exclusive testimony from those who know him best, including coaches, teammates and even Messi himself, it offers an unrivalled behind-the-scenes look at the life of a football superstar.

Neymar
From a young age, Neymar Junior was identified as a future great of world football. Since then there have been both highs and lows, with triumphs at Santos sometimes overshadowed by the controversies and disappointments of his early days at Barcelona and at the Brazil World Cup. But his pivotal role in Barca's spectacular 2015 treble has reconfirmed him as one of football's most devastating attacking forces and he now stands on the brink of greatness. Fully updated and drawing on exclusive interviews with those who have known and worked with him, Neymar paints a compelling picture of the life and career of a global icon.

Griezmann
Quick, incisive and versatile, Antoine Griezmann is the ultimate modern forward. Arriving in 2014 to join an Atlético Madrid side persistently challenging for the biggest trophies in Spanish and European football, he quickly established himself as the team's key player and main goal threat. A Super Cup win over city rivals Real Madrid was just the start but an inspired tilt at the Champions League the following season ended in heartbreak - as did a Euro 2016 campaign in which his performances for France saw him named player of the tournament. In this first biography of the Atléti and France star, Madrid-based journalist Luca Caioli examines the story behind Griezmann's rise to the top.

Mbappe
Kylian Mbappé's meteoric rise to footballing stardom has been one of the major talking points of recent seasons. Having only made his professional debut for Monaco in 2015, aged just sixteen, by summer 2017 he had already seen a £200m price tag placed on his head - one that Paris Saint-Germain were eager to meet. In his brief career to date he has broken records at a rate matched only by the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, with many pundits tipping him to rival their legendary legacies in the years to come. In this first biography of the France and PSG star, Luca Caioli and Cyril Collot examine the story behind the game’s latest superstar. Features exclusive interviews.

Pogba

When Manchester United re-signed their former youth player Paul Pogba for a world record fee in the summer of 2016, they made a powerful statement. Together with the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimović, it signalled their determination to attract the best players in the world to Old Trafford, despite three seasons of underachievement. In the four years since he had left the Reds, Pogba had blossomed into a midfielder of undoubted world class, his power and dynamism propelling Juventus to a host of club titles and the French national team to within a whisker of winning Euro 2016. With exclusive insights from those closest to the player, Luca Caioli's Pogba is an in-depth portrait of one of modern football's greatest talents.

Ronaldo

Strength, speed and dedication:  Cristiano Ronaldo is known throughout the world  as a colossus of the modern game.

But did you know that he underwent laser heart surgery aged just fifteen to enable him to continue playing the game he loved?

Or that Nacional, his first professional club, donated twenty balls and two sets of kits to his youth team in order to sign him?

Or how he came to be known as abelhinha –‘little bee’ –a name he would later pass on to his Yorkshire Terrier?
