1. Gareth Bale
Without any doubt whatsoever, the Real Madrid superstar and Welsh talisman Gareth Bale sits on top of the list of some of the fastest players in modern day football. Bale has proved time and time again that there is no one in world football who can match his pace on the pitch with run-ins against Maicon and Marc Bartra some of the most remembered sprint races on the football pitch. Although the Welshman frequently misses out on games owing to repeated injury concerns, there is no question regarding the fact that he is the fastest modern day football in existence today.
