Ballon d’Or 2018 live online: updates
Antoine Griezmann made his case. But so did Luka Modric and it looks like he will be named the best player in the world on Monday night in London although it is yet to be confirmed. He travels with an entourage from Real Madrid including the club president and captain in a sign of solidarity.
He has competition from the likes of Ronaldo, Griezmann and also Kylian Mbappe, who won’t win this year but has another decade of battling for the award.
Ronaldo won’t travel for the award after a massive strop when he didn’t win The Best award. Jorge Mendes left midway through that ceremony and they are completely avoiding the event tonight in London to save us from more histrionics.
France won the World Cup and Varane, along with Mbappe, have been campaigning for a French winner but it looks like they will be disappointed on Monday night when the red carpet is being rolled up.
