The award has been dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi since 2008, with both players winning five each in the past decade.

That's an incredible achievement considering the previous record was just three, held jointly by Johann Cruyff, Michel Platini, and Marco van Basten.

Messi's getting older, Ronaldo's getting older, "I want to be the next one".

The victor for the best player is Chelsea star and Belgium worldwide, Eden Hazard, which doesn't come as a surprise because the forward had a great performance last month.

The Belgian has started the Premier League season on fire after leading his country to third place at the World Cup.

And Rosenior believes the 27-year-old is looking at Cristiano Ronaldo, 33, and Lionel Messi, 31, and thinking he can leapfrog them with his dream switch to La Liga.

Having already won the European Best Player award and the FIFA Best Player award, Modric will make it a hat-trick of awards should he win the Ballon d'Or too.

Indeed, Los Blancos are without a win in their last four matches in all competitions, and three of those fixtures have ended in defeats. I could say [Madrid and France defender Raphael] Varane because he won a lot too.

"It is going to be a reward for his wonderful season in the Champions League and the final of the World Cup".

If Hazard is right, the Ronaldo/Messi duopoly is about to finally be broken.

"I completely understand why he wants to go from that level, to that level". Let us know in the comments section below.
