Real Madrid midfield mastero Luka Modric is reportedly the winner of the 2018 Ballon D’or.

Modric will therefore become the first non messi-ronaldo player to win the award in the last decade.

Last week, France football’s team where at the Spanish capital to make the usual photo with the prize that should be on the cover of the magazine. And Sources close to them understood that the Croatian have won the prestigious price.

In the wake of the 2018 World Cup, which saw a number of favourites exit prematurely and plenty of individual talents taking centre-stage, the way indeed paved for a new player to break up the long-standing Ronaldo-Messi duopoly, especially since neither player reached the levels that were expected of them in Russia.

For a World Cup that was hyped up as a tournament for the two forwards to shine in, both their respective nations were disappointingly eliminated in the last 16 stage.

Modric won the world cup Golden ball award – the prize awarded to the tournament’s best-performing player – after guiding his side to the final in Moscow.

In doing so, he firmly established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world (if not the best) after guiding Croatia to the World Cup final and playing a pivotal part as Real Madrid won a third successive Champions League trophy, not to mention clinching the FIFA Best Award ahead of perennial duality Messi and Ronaldo.

The Award ceremony will take place in paris on Monday 3rd December 2018.
