It’s being reportedly in the Italian press that AC Milan have made a move for forward Lucas Ramalho Ordonho, who was born in the United States but currently plays in Brazil with Clube Náutico Capibaribe.
The 17 year-old player was born in Dallas, Texas, but played in the youth system of Sport Club do Recife before switching to city rivals Náutico.

Not much is available about the forward, other than that he’s apparently been reportedly been a target for Milan for a few weeks now, and that while he was born in the US, he’s played in Brazil for at least a few years.
It’s hard to rate this rumor at all, but it wouldn’t be the first South American player to head over to Italy as a teenager to try and make it in Serie A. It also wouldn’t be shocking to see Milan try and build up the youth system at the club.
In fact, perhaps the only reason this is getting any news at all is that finding a Brazilian player who was born in the United States is pretty rare. and so perhaps that’s reason enough to write about it. Either way, this is a signing for the future, if it even happens, so just put this name away in your memory bank and wait to see if he ever does make it to the first team at the San Siro.
Anyway, another possible American link to Milan. Cheers.
