U-21 international Malick Thiaw may be on the verge of a move to Italy’s Serie A. The defender leaves for northern Italy on Sunday.
On Saturday he went down with FC Schalke 04 in the crude 1:6 against Union Berlin, on Sunday Malick Thiaw was already on his way to Northern Italy. The 21-year-old defensive player is on the verge of a transfer to Serie A champions AC Milan, and the move could go through quickly. Thiaw himself had already pointed out after the Union disaster: “I also made many mistakes in the 1:6, but no club only looks at one game, but makes an overall assessment. “
From our own youth to the pros
This obviously convinced the Lombards. Last winter, the future champions Milan had already shown interest in the German U-21 international. The Schalkers, always plagued by meagrely filled accounts, are hoping for a transfer fee in the double-digit millions.
Thiaw had joined the Schalker youth team in 2015 and played his first professional games for the Königsblauen in the 2019/20 season. So far, he has played in 61 competitive matches and scored three goals in the process.
