Marcelo, 66.4 million subscribers
As recognizable by his haircut as his dribbling and furious breakthroughs, the Brazilian side is a prophet in his country and around the world. Like his three predecessors, he has more fans on Instagram than the other two major social networks.
Luis Suarez, 65.3 million subscribers
The last member of the top 5 is a Barcelona. Uruguay’s Luis Suarez, who scored twice on Wednesday in the King’s Cup, is the second head of the Catalan club.
Karim Benzema, 58 million subscribers
Only French in this ranking (Raphael Varane finishes in eleventh place), Karim Benzema is the echo of Real Madrid in the hexagon. Whoever celebrates his ten years at the White House is very present on Instagram (where he has more than 26.8 million fans).
Gerard Piqué, 54 million subscribers
If his most famous freak on social networks will forever be the famous ” Se queda ” published on Twitter, it remains very followed.
Toni Kroos, 40 million subscribers
Almost as unobtrusive as a green rectangle, the 2014 world champion is the first midfielder in this ranking. All other players are either attackers or defenders.
Luka Modric, 26.1 million subscribers
One thing is certain, the Golden Ball does not reward the most followed player on social networks. Paradoxically, the Real Madrid playmaker does not have many followers compared to his fellow players. It even has less than a million fans on Twitter.
Isco, 25.1 million subscribers
The Spaniard is the ranking player to be the most regularly on the bench. If Marcelo and Bale lose more and more credit with their coach, the other athletes of this top 10 remain indisputable holders.
