However, he has not played since September because of a thigh injury.

Pedri joined Barca from Las Palmas in October 2020. He signed a new deal with the Spanish giants which includes a 1bn euro (£846m) release clause.

Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Braut Haaland won the Golden Boy award in 2020.

The award which started in 2003 has also been won by the likes of Wayne Rooney, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Kylian Mbappe.
