AC Milan and Schalke are in negotiations over centre-back Malick Thiaw and the asking price has been revealed, according to a report.
According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Schalke have let Milan know that their demand to let Thiaw go is around €8m while Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara would like to trim some off the asking price of the 2. Bundesliga club, as they would be happy to close a deal at around €5-6m.
The negotiation is underway but it is not easy, but if Schalke decide to accept the amount that the Rossoneri have put on the table then the deal for the 20-year-old could close between Friday and Monday. MilanNews are also reporting that Liverpool want him.
The strongest alternative to Thiaw at the moment is Maxime Estève of Montpellier, a 19-year-old defender who only made his professional debut with the Ligue 1 club in a 3–2 loss to Olympique de Marseille back in August 2021.
