Who will be Worl Champion after 5-10 years?

I think Carlsen won't be World Champion after 5-10 years. What do you think about this ?

Magnus keeps himself in excellent physical condition so it's entirely possible he'll stay World Champion until he's nearly 40. He's the champ at all three time controls i.e., bullet, blitz, and classical. His accuracy is insane like his last game in the Legends match was 80% which is virtually engine-like. Of course, he'll lose the title some day but I don't think that day is coming for at least 5 more years at minimum.

If Firouzja continues to improve, he will probably be a very likely candidate, but I think that Caruana is still very dangerous, especially with the classical time controls of the Candidates tournaments and Championship.

That being said, it would not be surprising for Carlsen to continue being World Champion for another 5 - 10 years because of his consistent and dominant performance in recent years. He is the highest rated player of all time and is incredibly good at all time controls.

I mean like just look at the recent tournaments: Chess24 Legends of chess and Chessable Masters. His performance is incredible, and his opponents are current top-level players.
