Serie A have announced their MVPs for the 20/21 season.

Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has been named the MVP of Serie A this season, with the Belgian striker piping out the likes of Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lukaku has rightfully won the award after bagging 24 goals and 11 assists this season, playing a helping hand for Inter to lift the Scudetto after a decade.

Athletic supremacy, excellent technique and a leader’s mindset. His numbers are just fantastic: 24 goals e 11 assists!

Meanwhile, Ronaldo has been named as the MVP striker as the Portuguese ended up as the top scorer of the league with 29 goals.

The Old Lady endured a turbulent season, where they managed to qualify for the Champions League on the final matchday of Serie A. Nonetheless, Ronaldo continued his goal-scoring form and came up clutch in crucial games.

29 goals that prove his impressive instinct: always in the right place at the right time!

Inter’s Nicola Barella has been chosen the MVP midfielder of the season as the young Azzurri turned out to be a key cog in Antonio Conte’s Scudetto winning team.

All-round pressing, accurate passes and a perfect combination of quality and quantity: what a season!

Juve-bound Christian Romero, who plied his trade at Atalanta on loan, was excellent this season, which sees him win the MVP best defender.

The 23-year-old was indeed a revelation for the Goddess, who ended up third in the Serie A table.

Unbeatable in one-to-one confrontation, quick on recoveries and smart at anticipating the opponent's plays: an outstanding season!

Dusan Vlahovic was a surprise package in a faltering Fiorentina side in Serie A as he ended up mustering 21 goals. The young Siberian striker has drawn interest from a host of Premier League clubs.

Physical strength, amazing technique and 21 goals: a season to remember for the young Serbian

Last but not least, AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma has been deemed the MVP best goalkeeper, and unarguably no one came close to matching the brilliance of the 22-year-old between the sticks. Donnarumma picked up 14 clean sheets in Serie A, the second most after Inter’s Samir Handanovic.

Reliability, top-class talent and 14 clean sheet: a “Number 1” season!
