The AC Milan youth system is famous for having produced many great Italian internationals, such as Franco Baresi, Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Costacurta and Demetrio Albertini. Patrick Cutrone is another graduate who could break into Milan’s starting XI in the near future. He is an old school Italian striker – the style of his play is similar to the way Christian Vieri used to play. He is a real goalscoring machine for “Rossoneri” youth teams, receiving top-scorer awards in multiple Italian and international tournaments. He has appeared for Italy at the 2015 UEFA European Under-17 Championship, scored against Netherlands in the group stage, but young “Squadra Azzurra” were knocked out at the quarter final stage after 3-0 defeat against France.
“Able to score with his left, his right and his head, Cutrone has scored consistently throughout his youth career. Hard-working, willing to chase down balls, and clinical with the finish, Cutrone is the embodiment of the modern day striker. Cutrone has an incredible goalscoring record, receiving top-scorer honors in multiple international tournaments. This Spring he signed his first professional contract with Milan and additionally has received call ups for the Italian U-15, U-16 and U-17 sides. Should he continue on this pace, Cutrone will soon be breaking into Milan’s first team.”
