The International Centre for Sport Studies (CIES, Switzerland) made a study of the best forwards in the world and the blaugrana Leo Messi occupies the first position. The other two members of the club accompany Messi in high ranking positions, as Neymar is third and Luis Suárez is fourth. The second place is for a former Barça player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

This study is based on statistics from the 2015/16 season, especially in the ability to dribble, kick and create goal chances. Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo occupies the 6th position in the ranking, even beaten by Paulo Dybala, the young Argentine player of Juventus.

This study, which ranked the best defenders in the world some days ago, also reviewed the best attacking midfielders. David Silva is in the first place and no Barça player is in there.
