Modric is reportedly set to break Messi and Ronaldo’s 10-year duopoly on the Ballon d’Or trophy.

Reports last week suggested that Luka Modric, Kylian Mbappe and Raphael Varane were the top 3 after votes were counted. However, in a surprise turn of events, it looks like only 1/3 of that rumour seems to be true.
