for the prestigious award, with Jorginho,
N’Golo Kante and Kevin De Bruyne set to
battle it out for the honour.

The three midfielders have been given the
nod ahead of Lionel Messi and each received
more votes, despite the 34-year-old’s
sublime final season with Barcelona and his
triumphs with the Argentina national team.
