CorSera: Camarda rejected ‘monstrous’ Man Utd and Man City offers out of love for Milan

By Euan Burns -

Francesco Camarda rejected lucrative offers from Manchester United and Manchester City before deciding to sign a professional contract with AC Milan. 

According to Corriere della Sera (via X), the 16-year-old striker opted to stick with Milan out of love for the club that he has been at for his entire career so far, rather than chase the riches of the Premier League at such a young age.

The 2007-class striker is expected to sign his first professional contract with Milan today after what proved to be a much longer negotiation process than anyone expected.

Given Camarda is wedded to Milan and even made his professional debut against Fiorentina as a 15-year-old, the assumption was that he would immediately sign a contract and continue his rapid development.

There was then confusion around the salary that his representatives felt he should be getting, as well as commissions.

That led to a swell of interest in his services from some of the biggest clubs in the world. He had offers from Man Utd and Man City that have been described as ‘monstrous’, whilst Borussia Dortmund were also in the frame.

He is expected to sign a three-year-deal that will see him earn €500,000 per season.

  1. I hope he ends up like Maldini a one man club. Stick with ac milan guarantee he could become one of the best in the world

    1. doubt it. If in two or three years time Madrid or City or some other petro-club comes with an offer of 100M, he is gone.
      ManU sold prime Ronaldo, Chelsea sold Hazard, Barcelona let Neymar go, Madrid sold Ronaldo and Benz. etc. Clubs not needing money, selling big players. We need the money, so we will be selling. 🙂 . It’s fine, the Era of one player club is long gone

  2. Thanks to Brexit, English clubs can not play these kids. I guess he wasn’t so excited at the idea to play on loan for Troyes. Let’s pray for the management to value “love” now and not sell him at the first offer like some other life long Milanista before.

  3. Hopefully these long term moves made my ownership will give us the ability to pay more competitive wages in the future so we can keep Camarda for a while.

    1. What now? What is Cardinale doing to ruin player’s future? Which players future has he destroyed with his stupidity?
