Chelsea star Eden Hazard names who he thinks will win the Ballon d’Or

Who will win the Ballon d’Or?

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has named the player who he thinks should and will win the Ballon d’Or award when the winner is revealed in under two months time.

There have been many discussions about the Ballon d’Or over the past few weeks.

Ever since Luka Modric picked up both UEFA and FIFA’s awards for best player of the year, there is a sense of anticipation for this event.

It’s by no means a foregone conclusion that the Croatian will win it and players such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been mooted as potential winners.

Though, Eden Hazard already has his mind set on one player.

Luka Modric going for the full house

That player is Luka Modric.

The Belgian claimed this week that he thinks Modric will win it and rightly so.

“I don’t think I’m going to win it. In my opinion, Luka Modric deserves it,” he explained, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

“There are three to four players.

“I could say (Real Madrid and France defender Raphael) Varane because he won a lot too. I could deserve it too, let’s not lie.

Luka Modric wins The Best

“But seriously, I think that Modric will win it. It is going to be a reward for his wonderful season in the Champions League and the final of the World Cup.”

Hazard may well be targeting the Ballon d’Or in the future too.

He claimed this week that he would want to move to La Liga to be in with a better chance of winning the award.

When a journalist claimed that maybe it is easier to win the award when playing in Spain, he responded“That’s why I want to go, maybe.”
