What is today’s market value of Francesco Camarda

Despite his very young age, AC Milan Primavera striker Francesco Camarda is already one most valuable players of the Rossoneri.

An historic event took place at San Siro last November. Francesco Camarda became the youngest player in the history of Italian football and AC Milan making his debut at just 15 years and 260 days of age. The young Italian striker played in the last 7 minutes of the match against Fiorentina that the Rossoneri won 1-0. He also played a few minutes in the following match against Frosinone and has since returned to excel for the Primavera squad of coach Ignazio Abate.

The now 16-year-old prodigy is doing a great job despite regularly playing against players 3 to 4 years older than him. In fact, just a few days ago, AC Milan Primavera reached the Youth League semi-final defeating Real Madrid. Nevertheless, the seemingly love story of Francesco Camarda and AC Milan risks coming to an end very soon.

Francesco Camarda is now old enough to sign his first professional contract but as already revealed by acmilaninfo.com renewal talks have hit a stalemate. The permanence of Camarda is in great doubt with Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund luring in the background and willing to offer the talented a much more lucrative contract.

If he decides to leave then Camarda would be able to sign with any club he wants on a free transfer. But what is the market value of Francesco Camarda currently? According to transfermarkt, despite being just 16-years-old and having played only 12 minutes with the first squad, Camarda has a market value of €10 million. A very high market value and the highest ever for an AC Milan Primavera player. The market vaule of Camarda is in fact even higher than that of Oliver Giroud and Luka Jovic, at €4 million and €7 million respectively.

As mentioned above the Rossoneri are still working on the renewal but without any significant progress. The AC Milan management were caught off guard by the high demands of the player’s family and his agent. In fact, the player’s camp is asking a contract of around 500 thousand euros per season for the next 3 years and a signing bonus of at least €1 million.
