Eden Hazard admits Real Madrid star Luka Modric should win the Ballon d’Or this year for having a ‘wonderful season’.

Modric captained Croatia to the World Cup final in Russia while the 33-year-old also helped Los Blancos win the Champions League for the third consecutive year.

Hazard is among the nominees but the Chelsea star believes Modric deserves to win the prestigious prize ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

“I don’t think I’m going to win it. In my opinion, Modric deserves it,” he said. “There are three to four players. I could say [Madrid and France defender Raphael] Varane because he won a lot too. I could deserve it too, let’s not lie.

“But seriously, I think that Modric will win it. It is going to be a reward for his wonderful season in the Champions League and the final of the World Cup.”
