Sky Germany: Milan to meet Schalke this week over starlet with €20m clause

By Oliver Fisher -

The transfer window does not reopen for another two and a half months but it seems the AC Milan management are getting future moves lined up in advance.

According to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, Milan have the ‘most concrete’ interest in signing Assan Ouédraogo from Schalke 04, having held an interest in signing him last summer.

Milan officials want to meet their Schalke counterparts as early as this week in order to try and begin negotiations over the 17-year-old, having not been put off by their failed attempt to land him last summer.

The journalist goes on to add that Ouédraogo – who plays predominantly as a box-to-box midfielder – has a release clause of €20m that is valid for teams outside of Germany.

Ouédraogo has played nine times in the 2. Bundesliga this season for Schalke, scoring one goal, and he could follow the path of Malick Thiaw who made the move from Gelsenkirchen to the Rossoneri.

  1. A 17yo box to box midfielder is surely not high on our list of priorities. We have plenty of players for that role and other positions that are much more in need of attention.
    Also we have a primavera team with several good players in that role.

    Striker/DM/CB/LB are the positions we need to strengthen

          1. No it’s not the same. Krunic is 1 player, Florenzi, Calabria, Kalulu are 3 .
            All of whom have their merits. Particularly Kalulu.

            So when we have 1 player for a position – Krunic, that is a problem. When we have 3, not so much.
            After we have a squad with 11 starters and 11 backups, then we can talk about improving the quality.
            When we literally do not have a functioning striker, a mixture of players at DM, none of whom are naturals and no back up LB, you start to understand PRIORITIES

  2. What I don’t get is how teens from other teams can be worth so much money but teens from our team are worth nothing literally. Could it be that they were given chances which confirmed that there weren’t much gaps between the so-called senior players and the children’s team? Anyway, some clubs aren’t fighting for anything so they can afford to give children the chance to play.
