Mohamed Salah is now the first African player and first Premier League player to make the top three of the award since it was first handed out in 2010-11.
It will be pertinent to mention here that Salah spread the magic at UEFA Champions League this year with carrying Liverpool into the finals but getting off the field due to injury in finals.
UEFA Men's player of the Year Award isn't that far away from you; it's all set to be announced in Monaco on 30 August.
Not to forget, both Ronaldo and Modric played an essential role in making Real Madrid lift this years' UEFAChampions League trophy. In total, Salah scored 44 goals in all competitions. He also won the Champions League title with Los Blancos. He has also won the award on three occasions compared to Messi's two.
Croatia star Modric then went on to claim the Golden Ball at the World Cup after inspiring his nation to the final, where they lost to France.
Ronaldo, who joined Juventus from Real Madrid for £99.2m in July, won the male award in 2017, while Dutch midfielder Lieke Martens won the women's honour shortly after leaving Swedish club Rosengard for Barcelona.
The Egyptian scored 10 goals in the UEFAChampions League proper last season to help the Reds reach the final in his debut season with the club.
Perhaps most significantly for Salah last season was his ability to single-handedly guide Egypt to the World Cup. Ronaldo's assist record was far worst though, with just fife in La Liga and three in the Champions League, although the Portuguese forward would often lead the attack for Madrid.
Griezmann is on a three-player list to be named the best Europa League player last season, after scoring twice in Atletico's 3-0 win over Marseille in the final.
