Camavinga or Pedri? Best U-21 player revealed as Real Madrid talent eye golden boy award this season.
Camavinga and Pedri are one of the best youngsters in the world right now and both players have been playing at the highest level. They did extremely well last season and Pedri Gonzalez won the golden boy award.
However, Camavinga played a big role in Real Madrid champions campaign last season and he did wonders from the bench under the management of Carlo Ancelotti.
Chelsea and Manchester City target Josko Gvardiol was asked about the best under-21 player in the world and his decision was clear.
Josko Gvardiol has made a name for himself as one of Europe’s top young defensive talents ever since joining RB Leipzig.
With his amazing quickness and mobility, the young Croatian has mesmerized spectators and established himself as a cornerstone in Leipzig’s defense.
Naturally, Gvardiol has also received interest from other teams, with Tottenham Hotspur among those considering a summer transfer for the young player.
Pedri or Camavinga? Who is the best?
In an interview with Football Talent Scout, Gvardiol recently praised Pedri Gonzalez as the best U21 football player in the world amid rumors concerning his future.
The best player Gvardiol has faced thus far in his professional career, in his opinion, is Lionel Messi. The defender had faced off against Messi during the UEFA Champions League group stages the previous year.
The former Dinamo Zagreb starlet even contributed significantly to Leipzig earning a point against PSG in the second game, though it wasn’t enough to enable them advance.
Gvardiol’s remarks nevertheless come in the wake of rumors suggesting that he would transfer to FC Barcelona in the summer.
The Leipzig starlet was one of the Catalans’ top alternatives for top target Jules Kounde last month, though they were ultimately successful in signing the Frenchman. However, they are unlikely to pursue him in the near future.
Having said that, Gvardiol has boundless potential and his versatility as a left-back makes him a useful alternative for Xavi. Therefore, it won’t be unexpected to see Barça pursue the Croatian international either in the summer or perhaps during the January transfer window.
