Ronaldo is ahead of Messi and Neymar- Francesco Totti

But Totti, who scored 307 times for Roma during his 25-year career, praised all three of the players.

"He had an unbelievable season and also accomplished all of his goals with the most prestigious of teams".

"I think that, in the end, Ronaldo is ahead of the others".

"We are talking about three footballing aliens", the former Roma striker, who retired this year, told Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Zinedine Zidane is also up for the best manager prize.

"Despite the extraordinary work of Conte and Allegri, I think Zidane is the favorite for the same reasons as Cristiano Ronaldo, because he won it all past year", said the Italian.

"But I think that, in the end, Ronaldo is ahead of the others".

Meanwhile, he sees the Best FIFA Goalkeeper award as being a shootout between Gianluigi Buffon and Keylor Navas, even if he believes his countryman deserves it.

Goalkeepers have a lot of influence on the game, but they do not know what they should be. He's been the best individually, but also his team reached the Champions League final - the same as Keylor Navas.

The awards will be presented on October 23 at the London Palladium.

And now Sergio Ramos, who this year won La Liga and the Champions League along with Ronaldo, has given fans his personal insight towards the prestigious award - announcing who his top five players would be for the trophy.

Totti says that the decisive factor was Ronaldo's ability to lead Real Madrid to domestic and European glory.
