Manchester United target Erling Haaland wins Golden Boy award

Erling Haaland graced Saturday’s Tuttosport front page as the best played aged 12 or under from a top-tier league in Europe.

Borussia Dortmund have an incredible player in Erling Haaland, who has just won the 2020 Golden Boy award after a stunning first year with the Bundesliga side he joined from Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg.

Like again recently to Manchester United, as per Manchester Evening News, he is a striker who should be on the club’s radar at the very least.

The prize, presented by Italian newspaper Tuttosport and won by Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix last year, saw Haaland beat the likes of BVB team-mate Jason Sancho, Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies, Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and Manchester United starlet Mason Greenwood.

Haaland is deserving of the award after scoring 44 goals across all competitions in 2019-20, with 16 of those scored when he was playing for RB Salzburg.

The sensational Fati came second in the voting and fellow United transfer target Eduardo Camavinga rounded off the top five.

Greenwood, as seen in the picture below, comes 12th — a place behind Man City new signing Ferran Torres. Arsenal’s Saka is somehow three places ahead of the United forward in 9th place, and City’s Phil Foden is 7th.
