Neymar tells his Barcelona teammates he's leaving the club, as a record 222-million-euro move to Paris Saint-Germain looks imminent.
Real Madrid star Ronaldo beat Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Paris St-Germain's Neymar to the award in Paris. It's the Portuguese striker's fifth victory overall, drawing him level with Messi.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the clear favorite to be named the world's top men's football player of 2017. The Portuguese superstar is the holder of the award, which was handed out for the first time in 2016.
The recent Neymar football transfer was emblematic of the obscene games of the ultra-rich. With the record auction of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," the art world now has its own symbol, says Torsten Landsberg.
PSG's quality was on full display as the Ligue 1 leaders beat visiting Bayern 3-0 on the second matchday in Group B. Many will question coach Ancelotti's decision to leave his top two central defenders out of the side.
