AC Milan are planning how their attack for the future will look, and Francesco Camarda’s name continues to hover in the ever-decreasing distance.
Calciomercato.com recall that Camarda scored a hat-trick today during Milan Primavera’s 7-0 win over Virtus Entella today with a penalty kick in the 14th minute, a second in the 21st minute and third in the 31st minute.
At just 15 years old, the striker continues break record after record. A few days ago, he netted a brace in the UEFA Youth League against Newcastle United to become the youngest Italian to score in the European youth competition (15 years and 195 days).
Camarda also marked his debut in the Primavera league with a goal, becoming the first 2008-born player to do so. His numbers are very impressive: 22 goals in 25 games in the Scudetto win with the Under 15s and 22 goals in 18 games with the Under 17s.
With the hat-trick scored against Entella, Camarda became the youngest player to have scored in all three U19 competitions (league, national cup and Youth League), surpassing Youssoufa Moukoko’s record and also beating Ryan Gravenberch, second and third respectively.
The spotlights of Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City have recently shone on him, who remain waiting and follow the boy hoping to be able to step forward to try to snatch him.
However, Milan want to shield him and have a date on the calendar circled in red. Camarda will turn 16 on March 10th, with the Rossoneri management preparing his first professional contract.
This will tie him to the Rossoneri for another three years (maximum allowed by federal regulations). It still seems early for his debut in Serie A, but Camarda is moving forward quickly and the impression is that we will continue to hear about him.
