Ansu Fati and Haaland are considered two of the top 4 candidates for the Golden Boy Award 2020 after shortening the list to 20 players.
After 4 months of online survey, there were 200,000 votes for the race to win the Golden Boy Award 2020. From the original 100 candidates, the shortlist of 20 players has just been announced, including all the people. the most talented young face in Europe today.
Tuttosport newspaper is the organizer of this annual award for the best player born after 2000 playing in Europe.
A year ago Joao Felix won, and now, Jadon Sancho and Haaland of Dortmund, Ansu Fati of Barca and Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich are the main candidates. The shortlist includes 6 players in the Premier League, the tournament with the most representation.
Considering the number of goals scored this year, no one can do better than Erling Braut Haand, who scored 27 goals in 27 games in all competitions with both club and team.
“The golden boy” is not “The golden shoe”, which means many factors are considered and not solely based on goals scored.
For example, if you look at the market value, no one at the present time can surpass Sancho. Dortmund valued him 120 million and that is why he refused MU’s 100 million offer.
If you rate the titles won during the year, the winner will be Davies. Bayern’s left-back won the Bundesliga, Champions League, German Cup, European Super Cup and German Super Cup.
In terms of Messi-style magic talent, it is Ansu Fati, the youngest in the quartet (17 years old). Once ranked 6th in the Golden Boy 2019 when he was only 16 years old, this year, he continues to “miraculously perform” on the field, as assessed by Tuttosport.
