Just in: Chelsea players to win balloon d’or after Messi joined lower league

Jorginho and Kante in top 5, one more Blue featured: Ballon d’Or power rankings

The 2021/22 season is already underway which means that the Ballon d’Or race is back on, with players moving up and down depending on how they’ve fared in the first few matches.

As of right now, the likes of Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are yet to properly start the season after both changing clubs this summer.

The Argentine has only played 30 minutes for Paris Saint-Germain so far, while his nemesis completed 30 minutes for Juventus before leaving for Manchester United.

Chelsea, however, have 2 Blues in the top 5, with Jorginho 3rd and Kante 5th. The Italian was recently also named UEFA’s Men’s Player of the Year for last season.

New boy Romelu Lukaku is also in the hunt sitting at No. 7 and could make a move in the last 4 months of the year to put his name in more serious contention.

Robert Lewandowski has started the new season in style, banging seven goals in just four matches and winning the German Super Cup.

Gianluigi Donnarumma‘s chances to get the Ballon d’Or — which were rather high following the 2020 Euros — do not look that big at the moment. The Italian goalkeeper is being benched by Keylor Navas at his new club.

With all that being said, here are our updated Ballon d’Or rankings as we slightly change the top 5.
