Manchester City leading race to sign record-breaking wonderkid: report

Manchester City are leading the race for a record-breaking wonderkid ahead of the summer transfer window.

Though Manchester City aren’t necessarily renowned for bringing young players through, with Phil Foden and Rico Lewis the only notable players from the last few years to make the step-up to the first team, one European prodigy has caught the attention of the club’s recruitment team. 

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato.It, Manchester City are leading the race to sign AC Milan forward Francesco Camarda, a record-breaking Italian who is attracting serious attention from around Europe.

Camarda became the youngest-ever Serie A player when he debuted for AC Milan at 15 years and 260 days of age in November 2023, coming on in the 83rd minute during a 1-0 win against Fiorentina. He has made another appearance in the top flight of Italian football this term, though the majority of his gametime has come in Milan’s U19 team.
