Malick Thiaw is set to become AC Milan’s latest signing and he is set to cost the Rossoneri at least €7 million, a report claims.
As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the transfer fee for the German defender who is joining from Bundesliga side Schalke 04 is set to be €7m and then there will also be some bonuses to pay in due course.
He is at La Madonnina this morning to undergo his medical examinations and he will then put pen to paper on a contract that runs for five years and will see him earn €800,000 per season.
Standing at 1.94 metres tall, he is set to become the second tallest outfield player in the team behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Ciprian Tatarasanu is the tallest player overall.
The 21-year-old has been a key part of the Schalke first team for over a year and Milan feel that he can bring the necessary depth to the defence.
