Paul Pogba has named the four nominees he would like to see as Ballon d’Or winner.
The Manchester United midfielder has been named on the 30-man shortlist for the award but he is not convinced he is in contention.
Besides Pogba there where a number of French players on the list who assisted France squad to win the World Cup.
Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante and Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris are in contention, along with Paris St Germain's Kylian Mbappe, Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann and Real Madrid's Champions League-winning duo Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema.
"Whether it's Grizou (Griezmann), Kylian (Mbappe) or Raph' (Varane), they deserve it much more than me," Pogba told AFP.
"I can not designate one. But I hope with all my heart that this is one of the three.
"One of the four also because there is NG (Kante). That's all I hope for anyway, because there are many who deserve it. I do not put myself in."
