“The truth is, the handing out of a trophy isn’t something that worries me too much.”
Brazil star Neymar, 25, won the Copa del Rey with Barcelona last season before joining PSG in a blockbuster 222 million euros ($262 million) deal that obliterated the world transfer record.
The voting for the award, equally weighted between national team captains, national team coaches, media and fans, closed last month.
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is expected to be named Best FIFA Men’s Coach after becoming the first man to mastermind a successful defence of the European Cup in the Champions League era.
The former France playmaker is up against Chelsea’s Antonio Conte and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
“To be sincere, if they give me it, I’ll take it with pleasure,” Zidane said.
“But if the question is, ‘Am I the best coach in the world?’ No, and I’m sure of it.”

The winner of the Puskas Award for the best goal of 2017 will also be announced.
The favourites are Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud’s ‘scorpion kick’ volley against Crystal Palace and South African goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke’s remarkable overhead bicycle kick for Baroka against Orlando Pirates.
