1. Cristiano Ronaldo | Real Madrid | Forward

… yep, you guessed it, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The free-scoring Real Madrid forward has been unbelievably good this year, scoring a remarkable 66 goals for club and country since the beginning of January.

Ronaldo is expected to win the 2013 Ballon d'Or award - and it's almost impossible to disagree that the driven Portuguese superstar would be a worthy winner.

Better than Messi? At this moment in time - probably, yes.
