“The 30-player shortlist for the Ballon D’or came out this week and it included English talisman Harry Kane. There were also a couple of interesting absentees such as Alexis Sanchez, who scored and assisted more goals than Mane and Coutinho combined, but they’re both nominated!”
As Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have taken home the trophy for the last NINE YEARS it is not surprising to see them dominate the top of the market.
However, it’s the Portuguese supremo who acts as the VERY short priced 1/33 favourite for this after a huge year for club and country.
But, the little Argentinean Maestro, available at 14/1, did his chances no harm last night when single-handedly taking his country to the World Cup in Russia with a hat-trick at the barely breathable Ecuadorian home ground.
If you fancy anyone else at a price, the Brazilian don Neymar is available at an eye-watering 33/1 price.
After an excellent season in Barcelona in the formidable MSN strike trio, he moved up to France for a massive world record fee.
The pressure was well and truly on the lad but he has hit the ground running in Ligue 1 with six goals in eight games so far.
If you’re the patriotic type, and believe our great nation has finally produced the official best player in the world, then you can get Harry Kane at a massive 66/1 best price.
He has scored a hell of a lot of goals in a more competitive league for a worse side than Neymar – but let’s be honest, they’re never giving us the award.
