Milan officially sign Mastour

As expected, Hachim Mastour signed his first professional contract with Milan on his 16th birthday.

The creative midfielder is such a star of the youth team that he has already received his first call-up to the senior squad, sitting on the bench for a Serie A match against Sassuolo.

Milan released a statement confirming Mastour had marked his 16th birthday by signing his first professional football contract.

The deal holds him to the Rossoneri until June 30 2017.

In Italy players cannot sign professional contracts until they come of age, which has led to many young talents going abroad when poached by clubs operating under different rules.

Mastour is such a promising player that he has already filmed a series of adverts alongside Brazil hero Neymar.
