TMW: Milan eye Freiburg defender in Thiaw-esque deal – the situation

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are always monitoring talent on the market, thanks to their extensive scouting network, and the latest youngster to be linked with the club is Kiliann Sildillia. The Rossoneri, in fact, are eyeing a Thiaw-esque deal. 

Ahead of this season, Milan signed Schalke 04 defender Malick Thiaw for a mere €7m. Although the German had a rough start to the season, he has grown a lot lately and he has really impressed the management this year.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Rossoneri have set their sights on another Thiaw-esque deal. Kiliann Sildillia, the 20-year-old (will turn 21 in May) Freiburg defender, has ended up on their radar and Milan scouts have watched him in action.

He has played almost all of his 34 appearances from start and since he’s under contract until 2026, the German side will be able to ask for decent money for the French star. How much, well, that remains to be seen but Milan have registered their interest.

  1. He just renewed his contract april 3rd to 2026 so unless he has a low release clause or a somewhat bigger offer than his current valuation of 12 mil arrives i doubt there is much truth to this story unless we actually wants top pay 20 mil or something for the player. Already there this deal wouldnt be very malick thiaw’esque.
