Even though last year Lionel Messi(Barcelona fc) managed to scoop the ballon do’r after beating Christian Ronaldo and Neymar,this time round it may be a different story basing on what Christiano has done for his club Real madrid fc to get a place in this years UEFA champion league as well as helping his country portugal emerge victorious in Euro 2016.Its probably that the 31 year old is more likely to win this years’ best player title.

Former Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro said the forward should claim the lucrative individual gong after

helping Real Madrid to Champions League glory and

Portugal to Euro 2016 victory.

According to,there is no doubt Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo

deserves to win the Ballon d’Or, according to former defender  Cannavaro.

Ronaldo is favourite to win the Ballon d’Or after helping

Madrid to Champions League glory and Portugal to Euro

2016 triumph in 2015-16.

Ronaldo – a two-time winner of the Ballon d’Or which has now separated from the FIFA World Player of the Year award – scored 51 goals in all competitions for Madrid

last season, while he netted three times as Portugal reigned

supreme in France.

“Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Ballon d’Or, without

a doubt,” Cannavaro told Marca.

“Even if he hasn’t scored these last few games, we shouldn’t forget all he’s done this year.

“Carlo Ancelotti used to say that with Cristiano Ronaldo, it

is like starting a match with a 1-0 edge.”

This season, Ronaldo has scored five goals in all

competitions, two in La Liga and as many in the Champions
