Reports: Milan to sign record-breaking teenager from Parma for €600k

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have completed the signing of Parma starlet Chaka Traore and it should be announced tomorrow, according to reports.

ParmaLive among other sources reported earlier this month Traore is edging towards a move to Milan, even though Parma tried several times to renew his deal. Traore has twice rejected the proposals put forward both from the old and the new management, and a step up to the Rossoneri seemingly awaits.

According to Guglielmo Trupo of ForzaParma.it, Monday could be the day that Traore signs him contract as the Ivorian closed an agreement with Milan. He remarks how Parma will lose a player of huge potential, without collecting a euro.

However, Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com reports that the Serie B side will collect a small compensation sum of around €600k for the teenager, who actually made his debut against Milan late last season aged just 16, becoming first 2004-born player to play in Serie A.

    will he play in primavera or first team?

    1. Martin Bernhard says:

      He is 16 and primarily a left winger who can play both as cam and right wing and only played 16 minutes for parma last season in serie a so my bet is that he will deffently play in the primavera for the next year but he might train with the first team.

    I guess this is our Mr X for this campaign. I trust the management not to sign anyone else. So we take our ‘L’ in good faith.

      He just needs to wait for Pioli to bench him when his time comes…oh wait, never mind, Pioli will be out by that time

    Good move indeed! Future need to be taken care of too

    Now waiting official announcement of Bakayoko, Adli, Favre

    Selling of Kessie (for a lot of money to Tottenham, if he refuse to sign new contract), selling of Romagnoli (for good money to lazio, if he refuse to sign new contract)

    If Roma leaves, we need to sign at least 1 good defender out there from kessie’s and romagnoli’s money
