ROME – "L'Equipe" writes that the three finalists of the 2018 Golden Ball will be Mbappé , Varane and Modric . Nothing official yet. But the article discusses why it is since 2007 that the Ballon d'Or (awarded by "France Football") is won by one of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi. These three names were confirmed, therefore, for the first time in ten years winning the Golden Ball would be a new name.

The French star of Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann would also be outside the final .

Mbappé, Varane and Modric: who will win? The Golden Ball is awarded, at least this is the theory, to the player who most distinguished himself during the calendar year. Mbappé, born in 1998, can boast on the bulletin board the World Championship won with France. As well as Raphael Varane, defender of Real Madrid. Defender but on the bulletin also has a Champions League. Luka Modric, a Croatian midfielder of Real Madrid, despite the defeat in the final against France with his Croatia, has been named best player in the last World Championship.

But of course, the exclusion of Cristiano Ronaldo, if it is confirmed, will have a long discussion.
