Spending 60 million Euros to buy Haaland from Dortmund in the summer of 2022 is definitely a bargain for Man City. In his first season, the Norwegian striker became the top scorer in the Premier League and C1 Cup, contributing greatly to The Citizens’ treble victory.
Up to now, Haaland has 60 goals and 11 assists in just 62 matches for Man City. The average contribution performance is 1.14 goals/match. The number is too terrible for a 23-year-old player.
But despite possessing the best goalscorer in Europe, Man City still plans to find new strikers for the future. And according to the British press, Pep Guardiola’s team has targeted a man who has scored more than 450 goals.
Specifically, Calcio Mercato newspaper reported that the defending Champions League champion is interested in signing a contract with AC Milan prodigy Francesco Camarda. What makes this young talent so attractive to big names like Man City is his elite goal-scoring talent.
Statistics from the Italian newspaper show that this striker has reached the milestone of 450 goals, specifically scoring 483 goals in just 86 matches before turning 13. Average performance is 5.6 goals/match. Most recently, Camarda became the youngest player in history to score in all three U19 tournaments [League, Cup and UEFA Youth League]
Not only at the club level, Francesco Camarda also proved his talent in the Italian youth team. Accordingly, Camarda represented his country competing in 3 different age groups. Here, he scored 12 goals in 19 appearances for the Azzurri’s youth teams.
Notably, Francesco Camarda is only 15 years old this year and if developed in the right direction, his talent will reach even further. And Man City really wants the opportunity to own and hone this top gem of European football.
