If Haaland clinches a treble, could he surpass Messi in the Ballon d'Or competition?
In his Premier League debut season, Haaland has scored 35 goals in the league, breaking the single-season Premier League goal record held by Alan Shearer and Andy Cole.
Manchester City currently maintains the possibility of competing for the league, Champions League, and FA Cup titles. If Haaland achieves a treble, could he have a greater advantage in the Ballon d'Or competition than Messi?
Note: The voting period for the 2022 Ballon d'Or is not a calendar year, but a season from August to July. Therefore, the performance in last year's World Cup falls under the scope of the 2023 Ballon d'Or competition."
