The top Golden Boy award for 2023 was won by Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham after a stunning start to life with the La Liga outfit.
The Golden Boy Awards were created by Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport in 2003.
The award is given by sports journalists, from publications across Europe, to a young male footballer playing in Europe who is perceived to have had the best calendar year.
The awards were handed to De Zerbi and Bloom in London earlier this week by representatives from Tuttosport.
