Spanish journalist Sergio Gonzalez said on his Twitter account that the organizers of the Ballon d’Or award, presented by “France Football” magazine for the best player in the world, informed Argentine star Lionel Messi that he will win the 2021 award.
And the conflict has become open for the Golden Ball, which Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have dominated in recent years, with their age and the brilliance of other players such as Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho in 2021.
But the statements of the prominent journalist, if correct, will give the new Paris Saint-Germain striker the seventh Ballon d’Or in his history, in a new record.
Next Monday, eyes will turn to the French capital, Paris, to follow the 2021 Ballon d’Or awards.
30 players from different nationalities and continents of the world compete to choose the best among them during the ceremony of the French magazine “France Football”, after the award was canceled last year as part of the measures taken against the outbreak of the Corona virus (Covid-19), before returning to life again.
