Paris:

German World Cup-winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, Netherlands winger Arjen Robben and Real Madrid and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo are the three contenders to win UEFA's Best Player in Europe Award for 2013/14.

The winner, to be announced on August 28 in Monaco, where the draw for the group stage of the Champions League is taking place, will succeed last year's victor Franck Ribery.

A jury made up of journalists from the 54 member associations of UEFA will decide the winner.

Neuer and Robben were both part of the Bayern Munich side that won the domestic league and cup double in Germany last season, while the former was the outstanding goalkeeper at the World Cup and Robben impressed as the Dutch finished third.

Ronaldo did not shine at the World Cup but he did star as Real Madrid won the Champions League and Copa del Rey.
