Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante makes it to first five nominees for the Ballon d’Or 2017

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been named among the first five nominees for the Ballon d’Or 2017, France Football has revealed.

The prestigious award, which was aligned with FIFA from 2010 to 2015, has been won by either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi for the past nine years.

Ronaldo picked up his fourth Ballon d’Or last year to move one behind Messi, and the Portugal and Real Madrid forward is odds-on favourite to make it five this time around.
