The Golden Boy, the press award for the best footballer under the age of 21 who plays in a European first division league, already has its 100 candidates for this year's winner. This will replace Joao Felix, last year's winner. You can vote for your favorite in the link below.
Who are the favorites?
Although this list is undoubtedly led by incredible talent, it is worth clarifying who are the favorites to win the award this year. This time, it is good news for Borussia Dortmund, as two of their players, Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho, top the list.
Haaland has had a spectacular season, with 11 goals and 3 assists in 12 games. Haaland is having a historic season, being the first player in Champions League history to score 6 goals in his first three games, as well as the first Bundesliga player to score five goals in his first two games, according to Transfermarkt. .
The competition is made by his own teammate, Jadon Sancho, who has 17 goals and assists in his 29 games of the season. Its value has increased exponentially in just a few years, going from being valued at 15 million euros in 2018 to 117 million today.
Solid performance from the team!! Delighted to get my first career hat trick, a bittersweet moment personally as there are more important things going on in the world today that we must address and help make a change. We shouldn't fear speaking out for what's right, we have to come together as one & fight for justice. We are stronger together! #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
