The last player but not the least on Sancho’s list is soon-to-be Real Madrid player Kylian Mbappe. According to Sancho, Mbappe is a top-class striker who gives both assists and goals and, hence will make the top-ranking nominees for the award.

‘’Harry Kane due to the goals he has scored, I think if he did win trophies this year he would definitely have won the Ballon d’Or.
