The list of Ballon d’Or 2021 nominees have been leaked and there are as many as five Chelsea players on the list.
The five Chelsea players on the list are Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta, according to Goal.
Now that a 30-man list of top performers from the last 12 months has been compiled, the voting process can begin.
A selection of international journalists, national team coaches and captains will be polled to determine the winner, with each voter being asked to pick out their top five.
Once that process has been completed, the prestigious prize will be handed out at a glitzy ceremony in Paris on November 29.
Will a Chelsea player receive the award?
