Jude Bellingham, Lionel Messi, Bukayo Saka and Erling Haaland are four of the 30-man shortlist

England's Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka and Harry Kane and seven Manchester City players are on the 30-man shortlist for the 2023 Ballon d'Or.

City's Erling Haaland is one of 12 Premier League players nominated.

Argentina legend Lionel Messi is the overwhelming favourite to win and extend his record to eight Ballons d'Or after winning the World Cup.

Midfielder Bellingham and striker Kane both moved clubs this summer - to Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively.

Treble-winning Manchester City are represented by record-breaking goalscorer Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne, Ruben Dias, World Cup winner Julian Alvarez, Bernardo Silva, Rodri and Josko Gvardiol.

Croatia defender Gvardiol was not at City last season but Ilkay Gundogan, now at Barcelona, was and he also makes the shortlist.

The other Premier League nominees are Arsenal's Saka and Martin Odegaard, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, Manchester United keeper Andre Onana and Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
