IT WILL come as no surprise to AC Milan that Manchester City are sniffing around one of their top talents.
When you have the kind of goal record that Francesco Camarda has, it’s inevitable that Europe’s elite will be keeping a keen eye on your situation.

The 15-year-old is reportedly also wanted by Borussia Dortmund, but Milan are said to be confident about keeping hold of their wonderkid.
Although there are top talents in academies all over the world, there is something special about Camarda that makes him stick out.
The Italian centre-forward has an unmatched goal record from his time in the youth systems in his home country.
He is said to have scored an unfathomable 483 goals in just 86 matches before the age of 13.
That averages his goal scoring record out to 5.6 GOALS-PER-GAME.
Albeit this record was achieved in games that were not all 11-a-side matches and it is obviously easier to stand out with exceptional talent in the younger age groups.
But Camarda’s numbers are staggering regardless, and he has certainly earned the attention he has garnered.

He’s not stopped finding the back of the net for the Rossoneri as he’s progressed up the age groups either.
This week he made his UEFA Youth League debut in a 4-0 win over Newcastle United‘s youth setup, bagging two goals and setting up a third.
His brace made him the youngest Italian to score in the competition and he will be hoping he continue to break records as his career progresses.
It is reported that Camarda is keen to stay with Milan and dreams of making his professional debut for the Serie A club.
And it’s understood that the seven-time Champions League winners are doing everything they can to ensure that happens.
The club are said to have scheduled a meeting for next March when Camarda turns 16 so that they can tie him down to a three year contract.
And it’s not just at club level where he is slated to succeed, but on the international stage too.
Camarda is already representing his country at youth level and across three different age groups has bagged 12 goals in 19 appearances for the Azzuri.
