TMW: Schick is a concrete option for Milan but Leverkusen want €40m

By Isak Möller -

Milan are looking for a striker on the market and as their pursuit of Olivier Giroud has hit a stalemate, a few younger profiles have been mentioned. The most recent name is Patrik Schick.

The former Roma man is currently taking part in the Euros with the Czech Republic and has bagged an impressive four goals in four games. Therefore, it’s not exactly a surprise that he has attracted some interest on the market.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Schick is a concrete option for Milan and there have already been contacts with Bayer Leverkusen, who own the player. The 25-year-old already knows Serie A and has a salary that falls within the parameters of the club.

For the Rossoneri’s project, he could be the perfect addition and they are evaluating him with great interest. However, the first response from the German club was that they want €40m to part ways with Schick, which is a lot.

  1. Sorry, not sure if there’s anything in this story – I suspect it’s just ‘journalists’ making up stuff for clicks – I trust Tuttomercato as far as I can throw it.

    If this were true, and it is possible, then Milan need to take a long, hard look at themselves and their scouting – there have been numerous opportunities for years to sign players like Damsgaard, Schick and others. But instead of trying for them at any other point, they’d be doing it on the back of tournament when their value is at an absolute peak.

    To be sustainable in 2021, they need to be looking at the next players, not the ones who currently have huge values.
