The France international has now said winning the prize would see him fulfil a childhood dream.
Benzema told Canal+:
“Win the Ballon d’Or? Yes, that would be one of the many dreams I have had since childhood. Of course I dreamed of it as a kid.
“My idols, whether it’s R9 [Ronaldo] or Zizou [Zidane], they came to Real Madrid and won the Ballon d’Or. And that’s one of the little things I think about. Today, I’m not far from it.”
