According to reports, AC Milan is one of the elite teams in Italy and Europe that have expressed interest in Palermo’s emerging star Giuseppe Pipitó.

As a result, he has attracted the attention of numerous prominent Italian and foreign clubs, considering that he will be available for free transfer in the summer. In addition to Roma, Juventus, and Borussia Dortmund, Milan’s administration has recruited young Rosanero potential.

Pipitó has already scored 10 league goals this season, the most recent coming on February 25th against Cosenza. He had 17 goals and 15 assists for the U14s, earning him an early promotion to the U15s.

They spoke with Pamela Conti (former Italy player and current Venezuelan women’s national team coach), who has firsthand experience with him at an academy.

“Giuseppe came to my football school when he was four years old. He is a pure left-footed player with superb technique, but what differentiates him is that he never stops; at my football school, he practiced with all age groups,” she explained.

“He was our flag, our strong point, and our treasure. He is a very quiet, introverted youngster who expresses himself through the ball, which is a spectacle for me, as if he were a son!

“Even as a toddler, he displayed an attitude that is uncommon in such young children. At six years old, he scored a goal, took the ball, and returned it to the centre, waited for the referee’s whistle to attack again and score another goal.

“I have rarely seen a child like this. He has all the attributes to be a great footballer, and his talent is obvious.”

Milan has demonstrated with their recent moves that they are constantly striving to recruit talent for  the youth ranks in addition to nurturing what they already have, especially in view of registering an U23 team soon.
