Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the award for the last decade, claiming it five times each, but the expectation is that a new name will be read out as this year's victor.

In December 2007, Kaka won the Ballon d'Or and he wouldn't have known what a historic moment it would be for the Brazilian.

Now the front-runners for the award are Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric & Lionel Messi, however, on Monday evening we will be able to see who has won out from the Nominees announced by publication France Football.

Messi netted 49 goals for club and country which led Barcelona to the La Liga success but had a poor World Cup with Argentina. On the pitch, Ronaldo played a decisive role in guiding Real Madrid to yet another Champions League trophy. After leading Madrid to a third successive Champions League crown, he opted for a change of scenery, joining Juventus in the summer.

The Kopa Award, for best young player, is reportedly heading to Kylian Mbappe, for his efforts in firing France to a second World Cup triumph and impressive season with title winners Paris Saint-Germain.

While he had a successful World Cup from an individual perspective, netting a hat-trick against Spain, he was unable to inspire Portugal to glory and that will count against him. The likes of Luka Modric, Raphael Varane, Antoine Griezmann, etc have all been tipped for the award, but this will only be confirmed tonight.

According to Italian media, the Croatian playmaker makes a clean sweep of the awards this year winning both UEFA and FIFA's player of the year awards.

Alciato also claimed that Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric will win the Ballon d' Or ahead of Ronaldo and Griezmann.
