Messi, Ronaldo can no longer monopolise Ballon D’Or – Ferdinand tells Mbappe
Rio Ferdinand, a Manchester United star, has pushed Kylian Mbappe to join a team that can win the Champions League trophy in the near future.
According to Ferdinand, Mbappe must convince himself that it is his moment to win the Ballon d'Or by joining a team capable of winning the Champions League, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo no longer able to monopolize the famous individual prize.

The World Cup winner from France is expected to join Real Madrid this summer.
In an interview with Canal Football Club, Ferdinand discussed what Mbappe, 23, should do with his future.
“If I were him, I would go to where I think I can win the Champions League." Right now, it doesn’t seem possible at PSG, "Ferdin said.
