Papadopoulos said Trump was "open to this idea, and he deferred, of course, to then-senior Sen". He also said he does not remember telling anyone in the campaign about the emails.

De Gea, on a five-man shortlist that includes last year's victor Gianluigi Buffon, is joined by Manchester United teammate Pogba, who has been strongly linked with an exit from Old Trafford.

There is also no room for Bale, despite the Real Madrid forward scoring 21 goals in all competitions last season, including two in the Champions League final.

Ivan Rakitić is also among the selected midfielders, returning to the list after being included in 2015 and 2016.

The two sides have a lot of players nominated by Federation Internationale de Football Association to be in their team of the year, more than any other clubs including Man City and PSG.

Former Barcelona star Andres Iniesta is on the list for the 12th consecutive year.

The nominations are in for the FIFPro World XI and it includes 15 players now playing their trade in the Premier League.
