Aside from Ronaldo and Salah, the only other active .er inside the top 20 of the voting was Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.

The midfielder finished in eighth place and has inspired the Citizens to four of the last five Premier League titles. And the Belgian will be hoping to increase his tally, as City start their title defence against West Ham on Sunday.
