Spanish publication Marca has picked Manchester United starlet Anthony Martial and Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane in its list of 2015 top "revelations". Leicester City's in-form duo of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez completed the list for Premier League representatives, having led the Foxes to the top of the table following a stunning start to the 2015/16 season.
Barcelona's versatile midfielder Sergi Roberto, Valencia goalkeeper Jaume Domenech, Juventus sensation Paulo Dybala, Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, Borussia Dortmund goal-machine Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bayern Munich's summer signing Douglas Costa are the other six European stars who earned recognition from Spain's leading sports publication.
Martial became the most expensive teenager in football history during the summer transfer window after Louis van Gaal lured him from Monaco in a deal worth £36m ($54.1m). Such a fee was originally seen as excessive for a player who had scored just eight times in Ligue 1 the previous campaign. However, the player has been a shining light in a disjointed campaign at Old Trafford, scoring seven goals in his first 23 appearances for the club.
Marca pointed to his "superclass" goal against Liverpool after dribbling past veteran Martin Skrtel on his debut as substitute, while predicting that despite a recent goal drought the Frenchman will go on to emulate Thierry Henry.
Kane, meanwhile, attracted the attention of Marca following his breakthrough campaign, where he netted 31 goals in 51 games for Spurs. He has already scored 10 times this season and Marca believe that the 22-year-old will become England's "leader" in Euro 2016.
Vardy did not stand out last season but claimed a place in Marca's list after becoming "the sensation of the current English season". Vardy scored his 15th goal in 16 matches against Chelsea, having previously beat Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in 11 consecutive games.
Marca claims that Mahrez is the "best complement for Vardy in the Leicester attack" after the 24-year-old winger scored 11 goals and grabbed 6 assists himself in a remarkable start to the season.
