Amid the unprecedented coronavirus crisis that has wreaked havoc on the football world, the once-dominant duo of Cristiano and Lionel Messi is no longer at the top of the list for the Most Valuable Players (MVPs) in the world. In fact, transfer values and prices have descended to extreme lows amid the coronavirus crisis and Cristiano Ronaldo unusually finds himself 46th on the MVPs list with Lionel Messi still in the top 10, but only just. PSG talisman Kylian Mbappe leads the way along with the new-age Premier League stars dominating the top 10.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi dynasty coming to an end?

Since over a decade, football has been dominated by arguably two of the greatest forwards to ever grace the sport, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the world was able to witness a spectacular battle for supremacy but that rivalry is now entering its twilight stages. With the Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi dynasty coming to an end, football has given rise to the newer generation of talents emerging from the Premier League although PSG's Kylian Mbappe and Neymar claim the top two spots on the current chart of football MVPs.
