CM: Senior debut, contract and foreign interest – three questions on Camarda answered

By Oliver Fisher -

There is a lot of buzz surrounding Francesco Camarda as he continues to score goals at a rapid rate for AC Milan’s Primavera side, and a report has answered some of the main questions surrounding him. have published an article which tackles three of the things fans are asking. First, why can he not make his Serie A debut as soon as this season. Secondly, why does he not have a professional or long-term contract. Thirdly, would Milan consider selling him given there are many European clubs interested in him?

In answer to the first question, a Serie A debut cannot be ruled out this season but we must remember that Camarda is only 15 years old and is already playing with and against players four years older than him.

Regarding a professional contract, he does not have one yet because he will turn 16 on March 10 of next year. Only upon reaching the age of 16 will it be possible to stipulate a professional deal with a maximum duration of three years. There is no possibility of binding the player with pre-contractual agreements of any kind, and only when he turns 18 can a five-year deal be penned.

Finally, Milan do not have any intention of selling such a talented player but if they don’t secure him with a contract the player could be tempted by joining a European club on a free that would offer him big money and an ambitious project. In that case, the club that signed him would pay only the compensation that FIFA stipulate as a development fee to Milan.

  1. When he becomes the real deal, he won’t be going anywhere. His goals can return Milan to their rightful place at the top table of world football, so why would he want to go anywhere else? Dream on City…

    1. Why would he?

      Because Milan will sign another 10 strikers before he’s able to make his debut.

      Look at our track record. What exactly would give any youth player confidence that we can actually deliver?

      Your best bet is being a full back as we seem to be able to produce a ton of those mainly because we don’t sign any. Even still Calabria was already established in the first team when we just had to sign Conti who fortunately for Calabria got injured,

      We pushed out Cristante AFTER he’d won the Torneo di Viareggio Golden Boy. We signed a passed-it Essien who himself stuck around for a few months. A signing that lasted less than 6 months cost us a CM who could’ve been playing for us for 10 years, Instead he plays for our direct rivals. As do many of our former players. Napoli are the only top team that don’t currently have a former Milan player.

      1. I take your point, however, we are moving towards a much better position financially and may be able to offer our top players added incentives to take that aspect out of the equation.
        Camarda and others will also be key to the future emergence of the national team, which will require the development of such youngsters at the top level.
        We will all be disappointed if he decides to leave, but have to believe that he wants to do it for Milan
