Ten of last year's World11 return to make the 55-man list, with Real Madrid CF the most-represented club, seeing full 11 players make the cut.

FIFPro have announced their top 15 forwards in world football, as voted for by fellow professionals and there is a place for both Salah and Mane.

The final list of 2018 FIFPro world 11 will be announced on 24 September at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

However, only three midfielders make the all-star side, along with a goalkeeper, four defenders and three attackers.

Mane, a Senegalese player, has been a regular inclusion for Liverpool in the last season when they reached the final of Champion Leagues and lost to Real Madrid.

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. Andres Iniesta, who left Barcelona for Japan's Vissel Kobe, is on the list for the 12th year in a row. He has already won nine World XI awards, including last year's.

Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck quit, DC loses its Batman, Superman
We've reached out to Warner Bros . for a response to the report, but had not heard back at time of writing. The DCEU has been dealt another crushing blow, as Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman in the series.

Bonucci's Juve team-mate Giorgio Chiellini is among the nominated defenders, along with Stuttgart's World Cup-winning full-back Benjamin Pavard, Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos and Liverpool's Dejan Lovren.

The five goalkeepers shortlisted were Gianluigi Buffon, Thibaut Courtois, David de Gea, Keylor Navas and Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

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

He is joined by Liverpool teammate Dejan Lovren and Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos - who lifted Real's third successive Champions League trophy, at the expense of Liverpool - as well as Madrid teammate Marcelo.

Other defenders on the shortlist include England internationals Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier, as well as World Cup winners Raphaël Varane and Samuel Umtiti.
