CM: Man City eyeing wonderkid Camarda but Milan contract is on the cards

By Isak Möller -

Francesco Camarda has attracted the interest of several big clubs in Europe, including Man City. However, the youngster will soon sign his first professional contract with AC Milan, which is a dream of his. 

The 15-year-old has come through the youth ranks of Milan and was promoted to the Primavera side this summer after scoring a ton of goals. He has started the season well with three goals in four games, setting a record in the process.

In fact, Camarda became the youngest player to score in the UEFA Youth League as he bagged a brace against Newcastle. As reported by, Milan will give him his first professional contract when he turns 16 in March and the length will be three years (the maximum allowed at his age).

Camarda dreams of making his debut for Milan at San Siro and will continue to work towards that goal. The first professional contract is just a milestone along the way, not faced by the interest of the likes of Man City and Borussia Dortmund, as the report concludes.

    1. Sorry I dont have faith in this american company playing this money ball crap. Red Turd Capital

      I feel the days of having great italian players are gone with Milan. I hope i’m wrong but signs are showing this to be true

  1. My question is, why is he not on our first team bench? Many great player have played for big clubs at 16. I guarantee you even Pep would give him minutes.

    1. How many? He’s 15 anyway. I’ve been watching football a LONG time, and I recall very few players who were starting for a top 4 club at 16/17. This issue has nothing to do with Pioli playing him or not playing him, and everything to do with the obscene money that’s destroying the sport. Soon we’ll here about how this 15 year old is getting a [youth] contract for 1m per year, and when it comes time to sign his first professional contract will ask for 3-4m without much to show at the highest level. I called this in a comment in another recent Camara article.

    1. He can’t be sold, he can’t sign a contract legally yet. If he wants to sign as a youth for Man City, there’s nothing Milan can do to stop him.

  2. This is the future 9 for Azzurri and Milan. Better hold on to this kid. Probably the single most talented kid our Primavera has ever produced.

  3. I’d love for him to stay and come through to the first team but if I were him I’d know where I’d be going instead and unfortunately it’s not at Milan.

      1. No. There are ways to get to Milan. Coming from the Primavera is not likely to get you there. And City has at least shown they at some of their youths. Primavera consists of players who are fans of the club and not fans of the club. It’s amix. Don’t be deluded.

  4. Mbappe made his debut for Monaco at 16 yrs. This is stupidity to wait until he’s about to reach 16 and sell him to City and yet this is the time to be promoted and play for Milan.

  5. Youngest Goal Scorer at UEFA Youth League ? Did it mean surpassing Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe ?

    We should extend his contract ASAP and, review him : Will he ready for his debut at Senior Team and become the answer for Giroud’s Deputy ?

    He played like Shevchenko, but he look pretty tall and bigger than the other kids. What is his height ? 1,88m ?

    1. Last season he was 1.80m, but he’s still growing. Given how tall he is already, he should easily hit over 1.90m. He still has the body of a young boy, he’s not very wide, and that’s why they should keep him away from the first team for at least another season. There’s no rush.

      1. I reckon he is 183 to 185.

        Zeroli is a few inches shorter that Bartesaghi and the keeper (whose name I forget). They are 193-196cm.

        That puts Zeroli in the range of 188cm.

        Camarda is about an inch shorter than Zeroli, based on some video I saw.

  6. “Camarda dreams of making his debut for Milan at San Siro and will continue to work towards that goal. ”

    Only to be sold after a couple of years in the men’s team. =(

  7. As much as I want to get carried away, too, it’s madness to suggest that Camarda should be playing seniors.

    He’s still 15 and is by no means a physically mature kid.

    From memory Wayne Rooney may have started really young. Rooney always looked like one of those kids who had been shaving since he was 9 years old. I reckon Michael Owen started really young, too. I doubt he grew a day after 15.

    Camarda is a boy, 2 to 4 years younger than the Primavera players he’s playing with and against. He’s younger than all of the U17 squad who, from memory were born in 2007 and clearly still has years of physical development ahead of him (before he reaches the stage that he has stopped growing).

    He’s not even starting at Primavera level yet. In reality I think we could realistically target late in the season of early at the start of next season. Surely he has to get to the level of starting in and taking apart the Primavera to the same degree he has done anything else before we’d consider exposing him to Serie A.
