Former Roma Youth Product Making Noise Early in Serie B

Claudio Cassano is off to a splendid start in his maiden season after Cittadella acquired him from Roma last summer. He drew the nod in all four official matches so far. He has yet to score but has shined consistently. The Granata paid €200k to sign him, Calciomercato informs.

He inked his first pro contract three years ago, rebuffing the advances from Inter, Tottenham, and Atletico Madrid. The Giallorossi poached him from Barletta after he broke out with Bisceglie at the U-15 level, closing the season as the capocannoniere with 20 goals. He had a try-out with Juventus before transferring to the Italian capital, but the Bianconeri discarded him after three days.

Cassano has already landed on the radar of some Serie A teams, in particular Atalanta and Sassuolo, which are always active when it comes to prodigies. They touched base with Cittadella, which wishes to keep ahold of him as long as possible.

Roma are keeping a keen eye on the situation since they hold a 20 percent resale clause. He’s starring as a no.10 in a 4-3-1-2 formation but also played on the right wing in the past. The starlet has no relation with Antonio Cassano. He has two caps and one goal with U-20 but wasn’t part of the squad that went almost all the way in the World Cup last summer.
