Chelsea Star Makes Ballon d'Or 2017 Shortlist

Ronaldo 2018 cup not going EPA CONFLICTED Iran Costa Rica and Saudi Arabia being involved in the cup is a cause for concern
Noah Ferguson | 11 October, 2017, 00:47

Neymar, who left Barcelona to join PSG this summer in a world-record move, came third in the voting in 2015 and was fifth past year, while Suarez has yet to make it into the final three-man selection.

Ronaldo remains the strong favourite despite still searching for his first league goal in the 2017/18 season after serving a five-match domestic ban following his dismissal in the Spanish Super Cup. The pair are expected to lead the running in 2017, although the likes of Neymar will hope to have a say.

However, it wasn't enough for France Football's journalists to select him among this year's nominees.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is also among the nominees after he claimed his second Premier League title in a row following his switch from Leicester City.

France Football are announcing a 30-man list of nominees over the course of Monday and the 26-year-old Blues midfielder was among the first five names to be revealed.

Real Madrid forward Ronaldo, 32, beat Barcelona's Messi to win the award for a fourth time previous year.

The very first name to come out was that of Paris Saint-Germain's €222m superstar Neymar, quickly followed by Real Madrid midfield maestro Luka Modric.

Ronaldo is set to face competition competition from long-time rival Lionel Messi, who finished up as La Liga's top scorer with 37 goals - 12 ahead of Ronaldo - and helped Barcelona to Copa del Rey success in what was a largely disappointing season for the club.

The Ballon d'Or is judged exclusively by a panel of journalists after FIFA and France Football ended their partnership in 2015.
