Football Mondial – Ballon d’Or: Messi in history, this English media releases a scoop

Barely three months into its unveiling, the Ballon d’Or has already started spilling a lot of ink, especially since an English media outlet revealed a potential ranking for the biggest individual trophy.

The calendar year countdown for the Ballon d’Or has not yet ended, and all the favorites to succeed Karim Benzema are aware that France Football will not present its trophy until next October 30. Knowing that the 2022 World Cup, won by Argentina last December, will have a lot of press coverage, Lionel Messi is the logical favourite. Also, according to Sky Sports, the former Paris Saint-Germain striker will win the Ballon d’Or in 2023. According to the English media, Messi has a 75% chance of actually writing a new page in his legend. It will come as no surprise to learn that La Pulca lifted the World Cup, the only trophy missing from its greatest achievement, under the noses and beards of the French. Thanks to this world title, he has led Argentina to the top at every turn, and despite his troubled season with Paris, Messi deserves an eighth crown.

Manchester City stars to rival Messi

Behind the ex-Barça star at Inter Miami, Erling Haaland looks the only potential contender with a 19% chance. It has to be said that the Norwegian striker made an impression in Manchester City colors last season. A Champions League and Premier League winner, the former Dortmund striker should logically be on the podium. With teammate Kevin De Bruyne or Rodri? It is quite possible to know that the Belgian and the Spaniard are two of the Man City hat-trick designers with 2% … ahead of Kylian Mbappe (1%). Brilliant with PSG but especially with France, especially with a hat-trick in the World Cup final in Qatar, the tricolor striker is therefore unlikely to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or he so desires. Destined to compete with Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the one-day Ballon d’Or winner, Mbappé is gearing up for a comeback at the end of the year if Mbappé wants to win the trophy.
