Man Utd make 'very important' offer to 16-year-old AC Milan wonderkid Francesco Camarda

Man Utd make 'very important' offer to 16-year-old AC Milan wonderkid Francesco Camarda

Francesco Camarda is being tracked by a number of top European clubs, including Man Utd.

Manchester United have submitted a 'very important' offer to AC Milan wonderkid Francesco Camarda, according to reports in Italy, as rumours continue to swirl around his future.

The highly-rated striker, who turned 16 earlier this month, has been dubbed the future of Italian football after scoring over 500 goals at youth level.

Camarda has broken various records in the past year. He became the first player born in 2008 to score in the Primavera, when he netted for Milan under-19s in their clash against Sassuolo.

And a short time later, Camarda notched a brace and an assist in his first ever appearance in the UEFA Youth League – an empathic 4-0 win over Newcastle United.

As a result, he became the youngest Italian to have scored in the Youth League at 15 years and 195 days and the youngest player in history to score in all three major under-19 tournaments.

A number of top European clubs have previously expressed an interest in signing the seemingly unstoppable Camarda, according to Italian publication Calciomercato.

A report from September suggested Pep Guardiola's Manchester City were one of the clubs keen on making a move for the teenager - not to mention Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

The report also claimed a number of 'top European clubs' are chasing Camarda but they only named the previously mentioned teams.

Now, five months later, the same publication suggests Manchester United are the latest club to make their interest known.

In fact, United have already made their move with a 'very important offer', according to Calciomercato, who mention the ‘very cold relations’ between AC Milan advisor Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Camarda's entourage.

Camarda, of course, will not be able to move to England until he turns 18 as a result of Brexit rules.

United could loan him out to other clubs if they do decide to make a move in the coming months.

"For Camarda's human, technical and sporting growth, there is no better solution than staying at Milan," writes Andrea Longoni. "If he goes elsewhere it's clearly for economic reasons: just the thought gives you goosebumps."

Camarda is said to have averaged around 5.5 goals per game at youth level, according to football scout Sciabolata Morbida, who named the player as "one of the most prolific strikers in the country" before listing his remarkable goal record.
