CM: Schalke defender now the primary target – when Milan intend to close

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have chosen their primary target for the defence: Malick Thiaw. The Rossoneri are ready to make a decisive attempt for the defender after it was made clear that Trevoh Chalobah won’t leave Chelsea. 

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have evaluated several centre-backs throughout the summer but it hasn’t materialised in anything. And just as Chalobah appeared ‘close’, Chelsea made a U-turn and decided to block the move.

Milan, therefore, are ready to go all-out for the player that is still on their radar and available: Thiaw. This was reported by, he has a price tag of €5-6m and the Rossoneri are ready to sign him permanently.

In fact, Maldini and Massara want to close the deal on Monday. It would certainly be categorised as a signing for the future as Thiaw still has a lot to learn. It will be perfect for him to work with Tomori, Kalulu and especially the experience Kjaer.

  1. I don’t think he’s comfortable as LB, which would have been useful and gotten him extra minutes. Instead I guess we’ll occasionally use Calabria/Florenzi/Kalulu there when resting Theo.
