Kylian Mbappe is next in the betting at 4/1.

The French sensation finished third behind Erling Haaland and eight-time winner Lionel Messi in the 2023 awards.

But another excellent campaign with Paris Saint-Germain and France at next summer's European Championships in Germany could propel him to Ballon d'Or glory.

Erling Haaland is available at 6/1 following his second-placed finish in 2023.
