Milan Well Aware of Manchester City Threat for Starlet

Francesco Camarda is having a devastating impact in Primavera, the U-19 team, and Milan want to make sure he doesn’t leave amid the burgeoning interest from foreign sides, primarily Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund, Calciomercato relays.

The 15-year-old, who’s competing with players way older than him, just scored a record-breaking hat-trick in a Coppa Italia game versus Virtus Entella. He needed just 15 minutes to bag three goals. He’s the fastest to do it.

Camarda scored twice in a recent Youth League game between Milan and Newcastle, becoming the youngest to hit the net in the continental competition and the first born in 2008 to do so. He has filled his boots in any category. He tallied 44 goals in 43 matches with the U-15 and U-17 squads beforehand.

He’s also the youngest to score in all three U-19 tournaments, beating a record that belonged to Youssoufa Moukoko, who had previously bested Ryan Gravenberch in terms of precocity.

Milan will try to agree to a pro-contract with Camarda as soon as possible. He’ll be able to ink it next March when he turns 16. The deal can at most last for three years due to the federal bylaws. They can shake hands beforehand. Until he puts pen to paper, they can only hope he’s not lured by other sides. In such an event, they couldn’t negotiate a fee and would only get a small compensation.
