The Golden Foot award is handed out to the best performing players over the age of 29 and it's in its 17th year.

Past winners include Ronaldo Nazário, Ronaldinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, among many others. But both Messi and Ronaldo have failed to be crowned the Golden Foot winner.

Though Modric, who won the 2018 Ballon d'Or, will be awarded the Golden Foot according to Spanish outlet Marca.
