Mediaset: Milan to go back in for Bundesliga defender; January talks planned

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could go back in for defender Ozan Kabak in January, according to the latest reports.

The 19-year-old centre-back ended up joining Schlake over the summer despite being heavily linked with a move to the Rossoneri, who eventually saw Leo Duarte arrive in an €11m deal.

Back in June, we reported that Milan had informed Stuttgart that they intended to trigger Kabak’s release clause, which is set at €15m.

Schalke’s approach – which presented an opportunity to stay in Germany and continue development in the top flight – proved to be too tempting.

However on Saturday,’s Fabrizio Romano revealed that Milan are in fact still keeping tabs on the player ahead of a possible January swoop.

Now, Sportmediaset (via MilanNews) have backed that up by claiming that a lack of game time so far (just 12 Bundesliga minutes) may force Kabak to consider his future.

If that becomes the case then Milan will be waiting, and the report even adds that talks will re-commence in the winter.
