Ahead of the Monday gala, that will unveil the winner of the 2018 Ballon d’Or in Paris, it has been leaked that Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric will come first.
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.
If the leak turns out to be true, Modric, 33, would break the Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi cartel that has dominated the award for the last decade.
This year, Barcelona’s Messi is not even in the top three.
Ronaldo is reported to be runner-up with World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann third in the voting.
