Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the red hot favourite to win the prestigious prize following a prolific season for Manchester United, during which he has scored 38 goals so far.

However there are reports in the Italian peninsula that Toni could win the prize if the Azzurri were to emerge victorious at Euro 2008.

The 30-year-old is having an equally stunning campaign for Bayern Munich, and is the top scorer in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Cup, and has hit 36 goals in all competitions.

The Italian has already won the German Cup, is on the verging of capturing the league, and is also in the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup.

In the past it has often been big performances at the major international tournaments that has counted most in deciding who wins the European and World Footballer of the Year awards.

This proved decisive when the Brazilian Ronaldo won in 2002, and also when Fabio Cannavaro won in 2006 despite Ronaldinho being in the form of his life and winning La Liga and the Champions League with Barcelona.

The Italian media also argue that Cristiano Ronaldo has often failed to perform in the biggest games, meaning another failure in tonight's Champions League clash with Barcelona, as well as in the Euros themselves, may see him miss out on the Golden Ball.

Ronaldo can lead Manchester United to Champions League glory and silence all the doubters, but if he fails to, he might have trouble convincing the voting body.

Goal.com asks readers if there is a case for the Bayern man if he performs in Euro 2008 and also wins the Uefa Cup to add to his two trophies, or whether Cristiano Ronaldo has already done enough!

No way. He has to win it. 38 Goals for a winger is as good as it gets. That alone should be enough for him to do it.

I also think positions should be taken into account ronaldo is a midfield player so for me every 3 goals is equal to say 2 goals as a striker so for me he deserves the golden boot .

Is there anything this lad wont win in his career

What a stupid discussion this is by whoever is involved :eek:

I mean, how can Toni win? Hes a striker, who plays right up top.

Ronaldo plays on the wing, and has more goals (so far.)

Also, I bet you Ronaldo has more assists than Toni.

If Ronaldo doesn't win some people need shot. ;)
