Ballon d’Or list includes David de Gea, Wayne Rooney and Memphis Depay

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United trio Wayne Rooney, David de Gea and Memphis Depay have all been named on a 59-man list for the 2015/16 Ballon d’Or.

De Gea has been phenomenal for Man United in both of the last two seasons so he certainly deserves his place on the list but there are plenty of random names alongside him on the overall list.

Strange inclusions such as Leicester’s Shinji Ozazaki and Arsenal’s David Ospina have been placed on the list but one of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo will win the award as is always the case.
