The 30-man shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or award is being revealed today

Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Juventus from Real Madrid in the summer, won last year's Ballon d'Or.

Modric, a World Cup runner-up with Croatia, beat Juventus' Ronaldo and Salah to win the Federation Internationale de Football Association prize last month after Messi was surprisingly left off the final three-man list.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero was the first nominee after winning the Premier League, Carabao Cup and Community Shield, scoring 26 goals in 33 games in 2018 for club and country.

"I cannot designate one".

Premier League duo Roberto Firmino and Eden Hazard are among the nominees for the 2018 Ballon d'Or.

PSG's Mbappe appears a dead certainty for the newly-introduced Kopa Trophy, which rewards the best players under 21, and is voted on by previous Ballon d'Or winners.

Griezmann, like Mbappe, is a candidate to win the Ballon d'Or and believes he is just as good as Ronaldo and Lionel Messi - much to the annoyance of Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos.

The full list will contain 30 players the names of whom will be revealed throughout the day.
