AC Milan in talks with 15-year-old Francesco Camarda over first professional contract
Francesco Camarda made his debut for Milan in the last game
Francesco Camarda was unveiled to the world by the AC Milan team on Saturday. He was the object of considerable curiosity when he made his first-ever appearance at the age of 15, earning the youngest-ever debutant in Serie A.
The adolescent centre forward’s status has been clarified by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who also stated that the Rossoneri club administration is striving to extend an offer of an official deal to their best player as soon as possible.
In actuality, negotiations to establish a consensus are still going on between the parties. In March 2024, Francesco Camarda will have turned 16 and be eligible to sign his first official agreement.
Borussia Dortmund is among the European teams interested in the player. Fabrizio Romano claims that the young attacker, though, is solely interested in playing for AC Milan, the team he grew up playing for.

Since Camarda won’t be able to sign a professional agreement until after his 16th birthday on March 10, as explained by Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, Milan have scheduled an appointment to offer him a possible three-year deal.
The 15-year-old is confident about his future and wants to advance with the Rossoneri to further his growth.
Following his Serie A debut, Camarda opened up about his feelings on Instagram, saying, “I discovered that I have a second home” and “it was something unique that I will never forget.”
Being 15 years and 260 days old, Francesco Camarda became the youngest player in Serie history on Saturday when he put on the iconic black and red checkered AC Milan jersey.
The striker beat the record set by Wisdom Amey, who aged 15 years and 274 days old after he played his professional debut for Bologna in May 2021, when he joined the match in the 84th minute as a replacement for Luka Jović in the club’s 1-0 triumph over Fiorentina, as reported by Sky Sport Italia.
