Chelsea Star misses out on Golden Boy 20-man shortlist

The 20-man “Golden Boy” shortlist has been revealed, with no Chelsea players included. That's unexpected, given the high-quality players they produce every year from the academy. From a Chelsea viewpoint, Billy Gilmour appeared to be the most likely to make the list, having played consistently at the European Championships and establishing himself as a starter in the English Premier League, but considering the stiff competition for a spot on the list, the Blues shouldn't be too disappointed.

From Jude Bellingham to new PSG signing Nuno Mendes, there are some genuinely elite players on the list. Getting games for Norwich isn't going to cut it in contrast to these guys who have regular Champions League outings.

OFFICIAL: The 20-man nominees for the Golden Boy award:

🇩🇪 Adeyemi

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Jude Bellingham

🇫🇷 Eduardo Camavinga

🇧🇪 De Ketelaere

🇪🇸 Gavi

🇪🇸 Gil

🇳🇱 Gravenberch

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Mason Greenwood

🇮🇹 D.Maldini

🇩🇪 Musiala

🇵🇹 N.Mendes

🇪🇸 Pedri

🇮🇹 Piccoli

🇪🇸 Pino

🇺🇸 Reyna

🇧🇷 Rodrygo

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Bukayo Saka

🇫🇷 W.Saliba

🇳🇱 J. Timber

🇩🇪 Wirtz

It's a pity that a Chelsea academy product — Jamal Musiala, who currently plays for Bayern Munich – is on the list. Before jumping ship, he made it all the way to the end of the Cobham conveyor belt. If only the Blues had been able to keep him.
