Cristiano Ronaldo to receive Ballon d'Or award at top of Eiffel Tower

Cristiano Ronaldo to receive Ballon d'Or award at top of Eiffel Tower

Ronaldo and Messi are the two frontrunners for the 2017 Ballon d'Or, of which the victor will be announced on Thursday.

Ronaldo is likely to be flanked by Madrid president Florentino Perez, who has insisted his player would win his fifth award to draw him level with Messi, and possibly coach Zinedine Zidane.

Ronaldo is expected by many to claim the prize, thanks largely down to his role in Madrid's league and Champions League double in 2016-17.

The ceremony will be hosted by the former French player David Ginola.

"Nothing has ever happened between him and me", the 31-year-old told TVE, per the Daily Mail.

"Just last season he had fantastic season".

"Me and the rest of my team-mates, we see Cristiano as always in good shape", the Croatia worldwide said. We are halfway into the season, we still have six months left of the season. "Maybe in Spain decisions would take a long time to be made because of some people's insecurities".

"The Ballon d'Or is important for us and for Cristiano because it's wonderful to be able to win a fifth Ballon d'Or but as I said, for us the most important thing is to be a team and win for the team".

"It's surprising to see the amount of goals they've scored, actually".

"For me he deserves to win the Ballon d'Or because he's had an incredible year", Real midfielder Mateo Kovacic said.

There have been rumours of discontent between two of Madrid's key men since they were defeated 3-1 by Tottenham in the Champions League in November.
