AC Milan wonderkid Francesco Camarda, 14, has scored 485 goals in 89 games at youth level

Francesco Camarda is the owner of a goalscoring record even Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi would be envious of.

The highly-rated 14-year-old forward, who has earned a reputation at AC Milan's academy for playing against older age groups, is said to average around 5.5 goals per game.

That's according to football scout Sciabolata Morbida, who named Camarda as "one of the most prolific strikers in the country" before listing his remarkable goal record in recent seasons.

In total, the young striker netted 247 goals in just 40 games for AC Milan youth during the 2017/18 campaign, when he was just 8-years-old. He then bagged 172 goals in 31 games during the 2018/19 campaign.

Mordiba goes on to claim Camarda scored 64 goals in 16 games during 2019/20, meaning he recorded 483 goals in 87 games during that three year period.

Since then, a limited amount of stats have emerged surrounding the young Italian centre forward, who has already made his debut for Italy's U15 squad.

That being said, the Daily Star claim as of June this year, Camarda has 485 goals to his name at youth level, although he has since scored twice for AC Milan U16's team.

The 14-year-old also featured for the club's U17 team in a Campionato Nationale B clash against Cittadella last month.

He started the game alongside fellow striker Luca Martinazzi, 16.

AC Milan fan Fer recently gave a fascinating insight into Camarda's promising career with the Rossoneri.

In the Twitter thread, he wrote: "For me, [he is] the most exciting talent in Milan's youth sector. He's obviously pretty young, but this boy is a rocket. He went viral because of his great numbers but it's not just smoke.

"He has everything. He was champion with the u15's last season and he won the award for best player with U14's (underage) at a tournament.

"This year he is supposed to play with the u16's but according to Transfermarkt, he has already played a match with the u17's.

"From what I've seen and read, he's something brutal. A complete striker with good mentality. He's done several interviews and has indicated that he models his game on [Karim] Benzema."

He added: "Maybe I'm exaggerating but, at his age, imho he is the most important talent in Milan's youth sector in a long time. He has a great journey ahead of him. Let's hope for a great development and a bit of luck and we'll see."

Remember the name.
