On Monday evening, there will be a new Ballon d'Or holder as Real Madrid's Luka Modric is not in the running for the prestigious award this year. As it stands, it appears that either Van Dijk or Messi will be walking away with the individual accolade as fans anxiously anticipate the ceremony.

The Dutchman can be seen cruising around in a black Mercedes G63 AMG, and his matte black ride is understood to be priced around the R2 million mark.

The Argentine superstar is an SUV man himself, and keeps it simple with a footballer's favourite, the Range Rover, which comes at a price of some R1.3 million.
