The award's prestige partially comes from its list of winners, which proves that it's a pretty good yard stick for predicting who will be a star of the future.

Rafael van der Vaart was the first winner 17 years ago and the Dutchman was followed by Wayne Rooney, Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Aguero.

More recently Paul Pogba, Raheem Sterling, Kylian Mbappe and Matheus de Ligt have all won the award.

Who do you think will be named as 2020's Golden Boy?
