Kylian Mbappe Names 5 Players To Win Ballon D’Or, Snubs Messi

France forward, Kylian Mbappe has named his potential ballon d’Or winners for 2018.

The player also put himself in contention for the individual prize in his five-man shortlist, alongside former Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Croatian, Luka Modric and France teammate, Raphael Varane.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward, however, found no room for Barcelona’s Lionel Messi on his shortlist.

If Mbappe wins the Ballon d’Or, he will have to break a decade-long monopoly of the prize by Ronaldo and Messi.

Mbappe told France Football when asked to pick out the likely winners, “For the favorites, I will say Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane… and me.

“To complete the list, I think I would put myself in there too.”
