Barcelona's Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi celebrate a goal against Atletico Madrid during their Spanish First division soccer match at Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona
La Liga: Messi, Neymar an Suarez should be Ballon d’or top three – Bartomeu

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu believes forwards Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar should be 2015’s Ballon d’Or top three.

The attacking trio played an integral role in the Catalans’ treble triumph last season, scoring a record-breaking 122 goals between them.

“Messi, Suarez and Neymar deserve to be the finalists for the Fifa Ballon d’Or,” the Blaugrana supremo stated on Wednesday.

Neither Suarez nor Neymar have ever previously made the final three for the Ballon d’Or, but Messi has won the prestigious prize on four previous occasions.

Messi bagged 58 goals in 57 games during the 2014-15 campaign and is currently considered the favourite to lift this year’s trophy.
