Manchester City trio remain in contention for Golden Boy after list of nominees is cut to 80

Manchester City have three of their young prospects still in contention to win the prestigious Golden Boy award after the first 20 players were eliminated.

Brahim Diaz, Phil Foden and Manu Garcia were voted into the next stage, with Lukas Nmecha eliminated.

This initial list of 100 is progressively cut by 20 each month until the final 20 emerge, with some big names such as Kylian Mbappé, Justin Kluivert and Matthijs de Ligt also in the voting.

Teenage pair Foden and Diaz played games for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City first team last season,both featuring enough in the Premier League to earn winners’ medals. Garcia spent the campaign on loan at NAC Breda, making a big impression, and has joined French Ligue 1 side Toulouse on loan for the season ahead.

Past winners of the award include Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Isco, Paul Pogba, Raheem Sterling and the most recent, Kylian Mbappé.
