CM: Milan’s offer for Schalke defender is take it or leave it – focus on Botman remains

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will not raise their bid for Malick Thiaw and will need Schalke 04 to reconsider their stance, a report claims, meaning a centre-back may not arrive.

According to Daniele Longo of, Milan have put forward a bid worth €6m with bonuses for the German U21 international but it has not yet been accepted and it will not be raised by Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, who deem it to be a fair bid.

The amount is still on the table, if Schalke were to think again and open to the idea of selling Thiaw for a price a bit below their internal valuation of the former Borussia Monchengladbach academy man.

Regarding other avenues, Milan have no intention of signing any defender on loan in the next four days. Instead, there remains very high concentration on closing a deal for Sven Botman with Lille ahead of the summer.

    1. Lol yeah that’s Maldini negotiation style. He has a valuation and he sticks to it. Very good if you ask me, but super stressful and irritating from a fan POV, especially when it comes to a player I’m psyched about.

      1. What are u talking about? U rather see us compete for Europa League like past years? Finally there is a clear view, and still people like u are complaining damn.. Kalulu, Tomori, Salamander,.. all examples of great negotiations so again, your pessimism is based on what exactly?!

  1. Malick looks good in highlights – strong, fast, aggressive, good with the ball. But that’s only highlihgts, so I basically just trust Moncada.
