UEFA have published a list of 10 nominees who could be named Best Player in Europe 2014-15.
Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, who won the PFA Player of the Year award last season, is the only Premier League player to make the list.
However, three former Manchester United men – Juventus heroes Paul Pogba and Carlos Tevez, and Real Madrid goal machine Cristiano Ronaldo – as well as Liverpool legend Luis Suarez – now at Barcelona – also feature.
The other nominees include Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo and Gianluigi Buffon, who starred for Juve last season, plus Barcelona attackers Lionel Messi.
Ten will become three on August 12, before the winner is revealed at a ceremony in Monaco on August 28.
