This Monday will know the definite list of the candidates to the Balloon of Gold 2017, after 'France Football' already made public the week happened the planning with regard to the final phase. After separating of the FIFA, that now commissions of the 'The Best', the French publication will communicate which are the last elected, although again the favourite goes back to be the valid winner, Cristiano Ronaldo.

From the nine of the morning and in sequences of five names until the 19:15 hours of the afternoon, will be able to know the candidates through his web and the one of 'L'Équipe'. Besides, at 17:45h, the 15 last also will publish through the television program 'L'Équipe Estelle', driven by the presenter Estelle Denis.

In the edition of 'France Football' of the next Tuesday will collect the 30 applicants and an interview with one of the nominated, that will turn into leading of the cover. One of the big doubts on the award is if Leo Messi there will be recortado distances or no with his big start of season to a Christian Ronaldo whose start is far from his performance in the past months. If it is not like this, the Portuguese will equalise the five Balloons of Gold that already accumulates the Argentinian, something that few expected does some years.

Another of the big inducements of the award will be to know to who belongs the third square, that the past year was for Antoine Griezmann. Footballers like the own French player, Neymar Jr or Paulo Dybala aspire no only to appear in the first places, but to oust to the two big favourites to the prize in a future no too far.

Of all they, however, Neymar Jr is without place to doubts the one who more options has to plant in the podium, given the enormous caché international that has purchased in the last times, especially after having starred the traspaso more expensive of the history, 222 million euros. The Brazilian, besides, is surrendering to a spectacular level in these first crashes of the season 2017-18.
