Messi helped Barcelona to win the La Liga championship last season, and was top goal-scorer in Europe with 46 league goals. Argentina star Messi, the four-time reigning FIFA Ballon d'Or winner, won the European Golden Shoe last season.

Ribery led Bayern Munich to a stunning treble victory. France international Ribery played a key role for the Bayern Munich side which became the first German club to win the treble of Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal.

Superstar Real Madrid striker Ronaldo has signed a new deal with Real Madrid and is now the highest paid footballer in Europe. Portugal ace CR7 netted 34 league goals for Real Madrid last season and finished up top goal scorer in the Champions League with 12 goals.

The trio won in a poll of journalists from each of UEFA's member national associations.

The overall winner will be announced in a live vote during the Champions League group stage draw in Monaco on August 29.

Last year's 2011-12 winner was Andres Iniesta. And his Barcelona team-mate Messi lifted the inaugural award for the 2010-11 season.

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is fourth, and Bayern team-mates Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller fifth and sixth.

Tottenham's Gareth Bale is seventh, Bastian Schweinsteiger of Bayern is eighth and Paris St Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie occupy ninth and 10th.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi had a lawsuit filed against him for tax evasion.

The 25-year-old Argentine striker, along with his father, Jorge Horacio Messi, are both accused of three offenses for allegedly defrauding over €4million in income tax returns in 2007-09.

The trial will be held at the courthouse in Gava, home to the €11 million a-year Barca striker.

Messi recently played for his national team in Quito, where Argentina was held to 1-1 by Ecuador in a qualifying match for the World Cup.
