Inter rejected PSG offer for 16-year-old talent Sebastiano Esposito
When we talk about young and talented prospects, there is always the risk of making comparisons that create expectations that end up increasing the pressure around that talents.
Inter continue to dream of having a great talent in its youth system similar to Balotelli years back or Donnarumma and Kean at Milan and Juventus. And this year, that dream is now a reality. He is not only scoring for Inter these days but also for the U-17 Italian national team which is competing at the Euro in Ireland.
His name is Sebastiano Esposito, striker born in 2002, lethal bomber of Inter youth system. Since the end of December, he has begun to move up the ranks and received important minutes playing for Inter Primavera, playing against opponents of two or three years older than him. Esposito has also made his debut in the senior team a couple of months back against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League return leg at the San Siro.
“Currently at U-17 European Championship, he has scored two goals in two matches, one against Germany and the other against Austria. Scoring a free kick (he is right footed) is the specialty of the number 10 and he has done so for both Inter and the U-17 Italy. An innate gift for him but he certainly practiced it a lot during his four and a half years living in Interello. He is inspired by Icardi but his idol is Totti. The dream is to debut in the Champions League next season because Inter have already rejected PSG and have no intention of selling this prospect.”
