Messi v Ronaldo potential for Serie A next season

Messi v Ronaldo potential for Serie A next season

Also on the list was French teen sensation Kylian Mbappe, along with fellow World Cup winners Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane.

The 24-year-old Tottenham forward won the Golden Boot at the World Cup in Russian Federation with six goals as England achieved their best finish since 1990.

France forward Mbappe, 19, scooped the FIFA Young Player award in Russian Federation as his country were crowned champions earlier this month.

France could sweep the main awards with Didier Deschamps and Zinedine Zidane heading 11 candidates for the best men's coach.

With Real winning three Champions League titles in a row you'd have thought that Ronaldo was a shoe in to follow suit but his and Portugal's failure at the World Cup, despite his four goals, puts that in question.

Trump considering revoking clearance for ex-Obama officials
At least one of the former officials, ex-FBI Deputy Director McCabe, does not now have security clearance, his spokeswoman said.


In a move that could see Messi team up with compatriot Mauro Icardi (a partnership that would undoubtedly become one of the most deadly in Europe), Tronchetti Provera claims that once the club's Financial Fair Play troubles are cleared, he'd like to see Inter move for the 31-year-old.

The French publication and Federation Internationale de Football Association jointly handed out the prestigious Golden Ball between 2010 and 2016, but chose to go back to the old format of two separate best player awards.

The other nominees are: Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus), Juergen Klopp (Liverpool), Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid), Ernesto Valverde (Barcelona).

Bronze's inclusion on the women's best player shortlist caps a fine 12-month period for the right-back.

The nominations include Asako Takakura, who guided Japan to the Women's Asian Cup title and Reynald Pedros, whose Olympique Lyonnais won a third consecutive Champions League and the French league title.
