AC Milan announce Thiaw signing, with another late window deal lined up

Paolo Maldini and co. remain hard at work ahead of the transfer deadline

Italian giants AC Milan have, on Monday evening, unveiled the latest addition to the club’s first-team ranks.

The player to have taken his talents to the San Siro with a view to aiding the Rossoneri’s efforts to retain their Scudetto crown? Malick Thiaw.

Word surrounding Milan’s interest in Thiaw’s signature first came to the fore online over the course of the weekend.

Amid the ongoing efforts of the transfer team at the club to reinforce Stefano Pioli’s backline, and growing frustration surrounding the pursuit of Tottenham’s Japhet Tanganga, attentions turned towards Schalke man Thiaw.

And, as alluded to above, it has not taken at all long for such interest to give rise to the Diavolo’s 5th signing of the summer.

As per an official statement across the club’s social media platforms:

‘AC Milan is delighted to announce that Malick Thiaw has joined the Club on a permanent basis from FC Schalke 04. The German defender has signed a deal with the Rossoneri lasting until 30 June 2027.’

Thiaw is understood to have set those in a position of power at the San Siro back a sum in the region of €5 million.

The late window recruitment drive on the red half of Milan, though, does not appear complete just yet.

Instead, as per a number of sources across the European media, the Serie A champions are too pushing for reinforcements in the middle of the park.

Yet to adequately replace key midfielder Franck Kessie, Maldini and co, it is understood, have set their sights firmly on VfL Wolfsburg talent Aster Vranckx.
