Valentín Carboni has finally been getting minutes on loan at Monza, and this past weekend, the 18-year-old recorded a goal, and an assist, and caused an own-goal in a 3-2 win over Frosinone.

Valentín Carboni is arguably Inter’s brightest current youth product- his accolades and praise over the years are countless. The teenager has been compared to AS Roma’s Paulo Dybala and even Inter Miami’s Lionel Messi due to his technical ability, skillfulness, and being left-footed. Making his Inter Primavera (under-19) debut at age 16, Carboni was voted ‘Newcomer of the Year’ with 5 goal contributions and winning the Primavera Scudetto.

Valentín, along with his older brother, Franco, has already been called up to the Argentina National Team- although he was not a part of any match-day squad, simply invited to gain experience within the camp and become familiar with the environment. Former FC Barcelona and Argentina midfielder, Javier Mascherano, is said to have been determined that the Carboni brothers choose to represent Argentina after having represented Italy at the youth level.

Valentín Carboni initially struggled to find game time during the beginning of his loan spell at AC Monza, but in recent months has gained the trust of manager Raffaele Palladino. He has made 12 appearances this season, 3 of which have been starts, with 2 goals and 2 assists to his name.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Inter have never considered letting the talented midfielder leave the club, ensuring that any loan spell was a dry loan without a purchase option. GdS maintained that Carboni is definitely in Inter’s plans as the squad lacks a player with his technical ability and that he could be an option for Simone Inzaghi as soon as the 2024-2025 season.

Furthermore, according to Italian outlet, FCInterNews, the young talent has had interest from Spanish clubs such as Valencia and Rayo Vallecano, but leaving Monza has never been an option.
