  • Gareth Bale

Although Manchester United keeper David de Gea seems to have not been chosen in the shortlist for the footballing award.

However, the Manchester United man believes he should not win the Ballon d'Or ahead of his global team-mates.

Mbappe, 19, was named the Golden Boy as France won the World Cup in July and has scored 10 goals in seven appearances for Paris Saint-Germain in all competitions this season, including four in the 5-0 victory against Lyon on Sunday.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero and PSG's Neymar are nominated as are two other prolific South American strikers: Uruguayans Edinson Cavani of PSG and Luis Suarez of Barcelona.

Another man on the list who was part of Real's Champions League success is Luka Modric, who went on to lead Croatia on their run to the World Cup final.

England only have one representative on the list in Harry Kane while Gareth Bale is also among the nominees.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard and N'GoloKante are also on the 30-man list, which is being revealed five players at a time. "But I think that a Frenchman must win the Ballon d'Or this year", he added.
