For several years, he broke his historic agreement with the editor of France Football, FIFA controlled the Ballon d'Or and created his own prize. The Best is usually delivered in the fall and rewards the best player of the previous season, an award that so far only won with that name Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric.
Now both are looking for a successor in the medal winners, so the leader who runs world football was responsible for making the 10 candidates eligible for the prize. And these are the ones we detail below:
Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus / Portugal), Matthijs de Ligt (Juventus / Netherlands), Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona / Netherlands), Eden Hazard (Real Madrid / Belgium), Harry Kane (Tottenham / England), Sadio Mané (Liverpool / Senegal) , Kylian Mbappe (PSG / France), Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona / Argentina), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool / Egypt) and Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool / Netherlands).
