Francesco Camarda, born in 2008, is Milan's hope for the future. The very young center-forward, who will only turn 16 next March, is playing in Ignazio Abate's Primavera team significantly below the age of his teammates. Yet, he continues to impress everyone.
In case the over 500 goals scored by Camarda in Milan's youth teams weren't enough, since he arrived in Primavera, the Milanese striker seems to have hardly suffered from the big leap made to the team of Abate. So far, he has continued to do what he does best: score. He has already netted 6 goals in 7 matches between the Primavera 1 league, the Italian Cup, and the UEFA Youth League.
Camarda is becoming a guarantee now for Abate's team: Milan wants to secure him for the present and the future. The Rossoneri club continues to pamper him, trying - as much as possible - to keep him away from the spotlight. However, it's difficult, considering he's breaking all possible records.
In fact, he is the youngest player to have scored in all three Under 19 competitions: surpassing even Ryan Gravenberch (Liverpool) and Youssoufa Moukoko (Borussia Dortmund), who are already playing in the with the senior players.
So, it's not surprising what 'Sky Sport' highlighted today on their official 'Instagram' account: "Francesco Camarda: the youngest to score in the Milan Primavera and in the UEFA Youth League and the Coppa Italia Primavera matches."
Indeed, it seems that in the past month of September, Camarda was clicked on 'Transfermarkt' more times than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are the legendary figures of the last twenty years in world football. One can only hope that Camarda continues to work on his football and focus on improving. With the right environment, AC Milan could have a very reliable striker for the future.
