The Race for Ballon d'Or 2024: Who Will Be Crowned the Best?



April 26th, 2024

The race for the coveted Ballon d'Or 2024 is upon us, and with several phenomenal talents showcasing their brilliance throughout the season, the competition is fierce. Last year we saw Lionel Messi competing with Erling Haaland for the Ballon d'or. However Erling Haaland's treble wasn't enough as Lionel Messi had an amazing performance at the World Cup 2022 and Ligue 1 which led him to win his eight Ballon d'or.

Favorites To Win The 2024 Ballon d'or


Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid). The young midfield maestro has taken the world by storm since his sensational move to Real Madrid. Bellingham's influence on Los Blancos' midfield has been incredible. His ability to dictate the tempo, orchestrate attacks, and contribute defensively makes him a complete midfield package. If Bellingham can inspire Real Madrid to Champions League glory and maintain his outstanding individual form, he could be a strong favorite to win the 2024 Ballon d'Or.

Kylian Mbappé (PSG): The Parisian talisman continues to be a force to be reckoned with. Mbappé's electrifying pace, clinical finishing, and creative flair continue to propel PSG domestically and in Europe. If Mbappé can lead PSG to a historic Champions League triumph and maintain his goalscoring prowess, he will undoubtedly be a major contender for the Ballon d'Or 2024.

Vinicius Jr (Real Madrid): Bellingham's partner in crime, Vinicius Jr, has blossomed into a world-class attacker. His blistering pace, improved decision-making, and deadly finishing have formed a potent attacking for Real Madrid. If Vinicius Jr can continue his goalscoring exploits and help Real Madrid achieve silverware on multiple fronts, he could be a favorite in the Ballon d'Or 2024 race.

Harry Kane (Bayern Munich): The England captain's much-anticipated move to Bayern Munich has revitalized his career. Kane's world-class finishing and playmaking abilities have seamlessly integrated into Bayern's dominant attacking system. If Kane can fire Bayern Munich to Champions League glory and maintain his goalscoring form for England at the upcoming Euros, he could be a serious threat for the Ballon d'Or 2024.

Rodri (Manchester City): The anchorman of Manchester City's midfield, Rodri, often flies under the radar. However, his influence on Pep Guardiola's side is undeniable. Rodri's exceptional positional awareness, tackling prowess, and ability to control the tempo of the game are crucial to City's success. If Manchester City can win the Premier League, FA Cup and Rodri maintains his consistent brilliance both at Manchester City and England at the Euros he could emerge as a surprise contender for the Ballon d'Or 2024.

A Thrilling Competition Awaits


The race for the Ballon d'Or 2024 promises to be an enthralling one, with these exceptional players vying for the ultimate individual honor. With the Champions League coming to the final steps and the Euros catching up in summer we might have a strong competition. Both of these major tournaments will determent on who will win the 2024 Ballon d'or based on the players performance.
