Madrid have another strong contender for the award in Luka Modric , who has already won the Golden Ball for his exploits at the World Cup with Croatia and last month was crowned the best player of the previous year by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Paul Pogba might have struggled to replicate his World Cup form with Manchester United, but the French midfielder's performances in Russian Federation mean he has also made the shortlist.

Firmino is nominated despite Liverpool failing to win a trophy last term and Brazil reaching only the World Cup quarter-finals, while Godin gets the nod following Atletico Madrid's victories in the Europa League and UEFA Super Cup.

They are joined by Mbappe's France team-mates Hugo Lloris, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane, as well as Croatia star Luka Modric, who won the World Cup Golden Ball.

"One of the four also because there is NG [Kante]".

The Atletico forward also added just how much it would mean to him if he were to win football's most prestigious individual award later in the year, stating: "For me, it's a dream. I do not put myself in", Pogba said according to Goal.

"The best team in the world surely possesses the best player, right?" Apart from that, it is a question of votes, opinions and different judgements.

Ronaldo looked a certainty for his third straight Ballon d'Or after leading Real Madrid to their unprecedented threepeat in the continent's prime club competition, where he was yet again the top scorer.
