The Top U20 Goalscorers This Season Revealed

After Mason Greenwood made Premier League history with Manchester United on Thursday, here are the top 10 U20 goalscorers so far this season, including a player who has been dubbed the "next Cristiano Ronaldo", while FC Barcelona's Ansu Fati just missed out.

Click through the gallery above to see the top U20 goalscorers in Europe's 15 highest-ranked leagues, and how many goals they have scored so far this season, according to Transfermarkt!

Greenwood became the first 18-year-old to score 10 goals or more in a single Premier League campaign in United's history after netting the crucial equaliser in his side's 1-1 draw with West Ham United at Old Trafford on Thursday.

The result saw United move up to third on the log, while the visitors secured their EPL survival with one game to spare.

Overall, Greenwood is in joint-fifth position among the most prolific U20 goalscorers this season – a list that focuses on players who were younger than 20 at the beginning of the campaign.

Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland leads the ranking following his 29-goal campaign for RB Salzburg and BVB. The Norwegian striker netted 16 times in the Austrian Bundesliga, before joining Dortmund in January and adding another 13 strikes in the German Bundesliga.

KAA Gent's Jonathan David, with 18 goals, and Haaland's teammate Jadon Sancho, with 17 strikes, complete the top three.

Further down the ranking is Francisco Trincao – who has been compared to his countryman Cristiano Ronaldo – who has scored eight goals for Braga in Portugal's Liga NOS so far in this campaign.

His fine performances saw him secure a move to FC Barcelona, a transfer that will be completed once the 2019/20 campaign is finished.
