France Football is revealing the 30-man shortlist of Ballon d'Or nominees throughout Monday, with the winner set to be announced in Paris on December 3.

The last ten awards have been split evenly between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but with Luka Modric recently honoured at the FIFA Best Awards, this could be the year that sees a changing of the guard.

Among the first five nominees (revealed via France Football's Twitter) are Real Madrid pair Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, who both scored in the Champions League final victory over Liverpool in May.


Liverpool also have a player among the first five, with Alisson Becker becoming the first goalkeeper on the shortlist.


Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani complete the first set of nominees.
