The attack left him hospitalised with a fracture to the right-hand side of his skull.
Police believe he was punched in the face, causing a heavy cut above his left eye, before he fell to the ground, smashing his head on the pavement.
From the injuries he received it’s understood that while he lay on the ground, at least one person repeatedly stamped on his head.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
Earlier that night the victim had been drinking with family in The Lyndale snooker hall on Church Street.
When he left he was with his stepmother, walking towards Morrisons.
It was then that the attack happened.
Family have been told by police that no other CCTV cameras were operational at the time of the attack.
A spokesman for Salford City Council said: “Our CCTV cameras operate 24/7 and were working on the night.
“Unfortunately there was a glitch on the recording of the incident which was rectified as soon as it was discovered.
“Police have been able to view some footage of the incident to help them with their enquiries and we echo the call for anyone with information to come forward and help catch those responsible for this dreadful attack.
“We wish Kade a speedy recovery.”
Anyone who may have witnessed the attack, or who was in The Lyndale or around Eccles bus station late on Sunday 19 June, is asked to pass any information to Greater Manchester Police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
