The last player to win the trophy before Ronaldo and Messi took over was Kaka in 2007. Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain striker who burst onto the global scene with his performances as France won the World Cup, is the favourite.

Real Madrid and Wales forward Gareth Bale and Manchester City's Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne were among the first 15 nominees for the Ballon d'Or award announced on Monday.

Griezmann, who was ignored for FIFA's The Best awards, is among the top 30 for the Ballon d'Or nominees.

The 25-year-old played a big role in France's World Cup-winning campaign in Russian Federation, scoring in Les Bleus' 4-2 win over Croatia in the final.

Salah enjoyed one of the finest debut campaigns in Reds history with 44 goals after signing from Roma in 2017, including a record tally of 32 in a 38-game Premier League season.

Eden Hazard gives Chelsea another player in the running after starring alongside De Bruyne at the World Cup, with England's Golden Boot victor Harry Kane also included.
