QS: Why Camarda will renew with Milan despite Man City and Arsenal interest

By Euan Burns -

Francesco Camarda has every intention of signing a professional contract with AC Milan when he turns 16 years old despite the interest coming from clubs like Arsenal and Manchester City.

As has been reported by Quotidiano Sportiva (via Pianeta Milan), the 15-year-old striker will be 16 in just six days and that is when he is allowed to sign a contract with the club.

As he became the youngest-ever Serie A debutant this season against Fiorentina, lots of teams are aware of his immense talent and are prepared to offer him a contract too.

The interested clubs are Manchester City, Arsenal, Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund. There will be others too, but those four would be able to offer Camarda more money at a young age than Milan can.

Luckily for the Rossoneri, Camarda reportedly has no plans to turn his back on Milan at the first opportunity and will sign a deal lasting three years.

He should earn €400,000 per season and bonuses from this contract and, should the project develop, have the chance to play for Milan U23s in Serie C whilst also always being in with a chance of first-team minutes.

Camarda has continued to score regularly for the Primavera side after his Serie A debut.

  1. Everything is not about money, he needs an environment that he knows and an environment that will protect him, going abroad will be the end of him, Milan is the only place he can blossom a d continue his development, he needs to prove himself and become a big player before he thinks of money, if 400k is what he will earn in the new contract per year, then it’s ok, their are fans and people who support clubs for decades that will never even smell 400k for a whole lifetime, but go to the stadium every week to see footballers..

    1. That’s true. Take example: Messi, although he’s not in his native country, but atleast he’s in mother tongue language country and he can maximize his potential until now, right.

  2. As a fan I hope he stays but if I were him and what’s best for his career I’d go to a team that bloods youth better.

      1. Translation: I didn’t bother to read the actual comment or just gonna ignore where it indicates wanting the player to stay so I’ll just go ahead and make something up just to get a reaction, spin people’s words and to get some hatred off my chest

    1. And what top team that played more young players when Milan is still one if not the youngest team in serie-a???

      1. I should have qualified my statement when I said youth I’m speaking about the academy. We play young players yes that’d true but apart from Calabria (Gabbia was a stroke of ” luck” due to injuries of our CB department) there aren’t many from the academy that make it into the starting XI or get regular playing time in the last 10 years or more. If Camarda goes to a smaller team or one that has a track record of playing academy players, he stands a waaay better chance of getting into the starting XI and playing regularly. It’s better for his development (but as I said as a fan I’d like us to keep him)
        Look at Traore who was getting Serie A minutes at Parma, got no minutes with us. We chose another team’s players (Jiminez) over our own Bartesaghi even though he’s more gifted on a technical level 🤷‍♂️. Plus Theo doesn’t even get a rest from either of them anyways and he needs it 🤷‍♂️
