FC Barcelona’s sensational young midfielder Pedri has been named as the 2021 Golden Boy.

The news was announced by the event’s organiser Tuttosport, an Italian newspaper. Barcelona also later confirmed the 18-year-old midfielder’s accolade on social media on Monday.

The Spaniard was voted above his peers that included the likes of Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and Giovanni Reyna, Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga, Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala, Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka, and others.
