The illustrious award which was founded by Italian outlet TuttoSport have now confirmed that they have named Dortmund’s Haaland as this year’s winner.
Haaland, 20, joined Dortmund from RB Salzburg in January in a move which cost the Black and Yellows a mere £18m, as per Transfermarkt.
Since the young Norwegian’s arrival in Germany, he has gone on to be directly involved in 33 goals in just 29 matches in all competitions.
Dortmund’s hugely impressive 20-year-old is tipped for great things and could even be the next winner of the Ballon d’Or after the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi retire.
However, in the meantime, the elite striker will have to make do with the 2020 Golden Boy award.
The illustrious award which awards the world’s best young player includes previous winners such as Paris-Saint Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt and Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix.
