Bellingham, 20, became the third England player to receive the Golden Boy, following Wayne Rooney and Raheem Sterling.

He received the award on Monday night at a glamorous ceremony in Turin.

After winning the award he was asked who he sees as winning the award in the future and he named three players, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Jobe Bellingham and Guler.

Bellingham described Guler as being a ‘phenomenon’ and that all his teammates are ‘amazed by him’.

“Aside from those born in 2003, I can name three players. Arda Guler, who has recovered from injuries that have prevented him from making his debut with Real Madrid. He is a phenomenon and we see it in training, we are all amazed by him. Then, my former Borussia Dortmund teammate Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and my brother Jobe, a striker, like our father,” he was quoted by the Mirror as saying.

Bellingham has had a sensational start to his Spanish career, scoring 15 goals in 17 games since his €103 million (£88 million) summer transfer.

Out of 50 voting journalists, 45 placed him first, with the remaining five placing him second. Kylian Mbappe received the same 97% share of the vote in 2017, when the jury consisted of only 30 members.

Guler meanwhile, has yet to make his debut for Real due to recurring injuries he has had since the pre-season US tour.

The Turkish international has however, recovered and returned to training and is expected to be match ready soon.
