United`s De Gea Nominated for Prestigious Award

United`s De Gea Nominated for Prestigious Award

Yesterday (Monday), the thirty candidates for the Balon d`Or award were revealed.

The list of thirty footballers contains some pretty famous names with the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo amongst the favourites to win the prestigious award.

However, we are pleased to announce that it does include the name of one Manchester United player, with David de Gea featuring on the list.

The full list being:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund and Gabon), Karim Benzema (Real Madrid and France), Leonardo Bonucci (AC Milan and Italy), Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus and Italy), Edinson Cavani (Paris St-Germain and Uruguay) Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool and Brazil), Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City and Belgium), David de Gea (Manchester United and Spain), Paulo Dybala (Juventus and Argentina), Edin Dzeko (Roma and Bosnia-Herzegovina), Radamel Falcao (Monaco and Colombia), Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid and France), Eden Hazard (Chelsea and Belgium), Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich and Germany), Isco (Real Madrid and Spain), Harry Kane (Tottenham and England), N'Golo Kante (Chelsea and France), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid and Germany), Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich and Poland), Sadio Mane (Liverpool and Senegal), Marcelo (Real Madrid and Brazil), Kylian Mbappe (Paris St-Germain and France), Dries Mertens (Napoli and Belgium), Lionel Messi (Barcelona and Argentina) Luka Modric (Real Madrid and Croatia), Neymar (Paris St-Germain and Brazil), Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid and Slovenia), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid and Spain), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid and Portugal), Luis Suarez (Barcelona and Uruguay).

It`s good to see a fair smattering of Premier League footballers on the list, hopefully they`ll fare well in the voting.

But one name on the list might puzzle a few people, with Rademal Falcao having, seemingly, rediscovered his mojo since joining Monaco after spells in the Premier League with both ourselves and Chelsea whereby it appeared he couldn`t hit a barn door when it came to finishing!
