I believe Messi should win it this year, he won everything with FC Barcelona, Neymar did great too but was still in Messi's shadow for most of last season while C.Ronaldo didn't win any trophies, so he doesn't deserve it.

I also think Messi will take it, even though I want it to go to Neymar.

I'm so happy to finally see a Brazilian there again, even better that he truly deserves to be there.
While our football is going downhill we still have such a great player.

Fair list! Happy to see Neymar there, but I think Messi deserves this year. If Neymar keeps doing good I can see him taking next year's (or the year after) ballon d'or.

Manuel Neuer



I feel like Suarez deserved to be there a bit more than Ronaldo this year, but as for who wins, I think Messi will win by a big margain.
Just look at how the votes went for Europe's Best Player a few months ago.

At first I thought the numbers next to Suarez and Ronaldo were their placings, but it's actually the number of votes they got.

Well, while they keep playing together it'll be hard to Neymar, but this chances we is having to prove himself as not someone to play under someone else has been great, Neymar plays as a lead, not a sidekick, Neymar is doing great already, and he definitely may be a strong name for next year as well.

If he ever gets as much priority as he got into Santos, as Messi got into Barcelona, he'll be taking some of those golden balls, not just one.

Yeah, Neymar got the max out of his role when Messi was injured, he really was the leader of the team at the time. Anyway, you have to consider that Messi will start getting worse soon since he's becoming somewhat old. In 2 or 3 years maybe he'll begin to accept a more secondary role on Barça, like Xavi did before, like Iniesta is kind of doing now... so that's when Neymar will get his chance to truly shine (he's still young, remember!).
