Juan Carlos Valeron

Club: Deportivo la Coruna
Position: Midfielder

Valeron is among the most gifted midfielders currently plying his trade in Spain.

His international appearances have been intermittent to date but that looks set to change after undoubtedly his best ever season.

He was immense for Deportivo in the league but saved his best performances for Europe where he helped rip apart some of Europe's best defences in the group stages.

Manchester United felt the sharp end of his attacking flair and he looks on course to play a significant part for Spain this summer.
