There is a lot of talk around this year's Ballon d'Or, which could be the edition to end the 10-year reign of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and reports suggest a new winner has now been leaked.

Two weeks ago, French journalist Eric Mamruth reported that the three players with the most points after half of the votes were counted were Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and Kylian Mbappe, respectively.
Neither Messi nor Ronaldo made that leaked top three despite sharing the Golden Ball between them over the past 10 years.
This week, there were two more Ballon d'Or leaks. First, journalist Mootaz Chehade revealed that France Football's team will travel to Madrid next week for cover photos with the winner.
This suggestion would seemingly leave only Modric, Varane and Antoine Griezmann in the running to lift this year's Golden Ball, which will be handed out on 3 December.
A few days later, Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri reported that, according to "insiders", Griezmann will be crowned as the 2018 winner of the prestigious award.
Modric is widely seen as the favourite to lift the award after already picking up the UEFA Player of the Year and FIFA's The Best Men's Player prizes earlier this year.
