Things are not going well for Ozan Kabak (20) right now!
Yesterday morning Schalke’s defense star had to stop training. First he received treatment in the left groin area, then he was driven to the cabin in a golf cart.
A scene that fits perfectly into his previous weak season …
The Kabak crisis – is Milan turning his head?
Since the summer he has been at the top of the list at the club of superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic (39), but this does not inspire the Turkish national defender. On the contrary: Kabak is increasingly becoming a bundle of nerves.
► Against Bremen (1: 3) he spat in the direction of Ludwig Augustinsson (26), who was lying on the ground, and later saw yellow-red. 5 games suspension!
► At the comeback in Mainz (2: 2) Kabak caused a controversial penalty against Jean-Philippe Mateta (23).
► Most recently in Gladbach (1: 4) he conceded two goals with fatal mistakes (Harakiri pass, loss of ball).
Schalke’s defense minister suddenly posed a security risk. Does AC Milan’s interest make him so cocky?
In the previous transfer period (until October 5), Italy’s frontrunner offered 20 million euros for Kabak, including bonuses. But in view of around 240 million euros in debts, Schalke’s sports director Jochen Schneider (50) insisted on 25 million euros – the change failed.
According to “Corriere dello Sport”, Milan is now planning a second transfer attack on Kabak and will again offer 15 million euros plus 5 million euros for success in January.
At the same time, the pressure to sell on Schalke has increased so much that the bosses (board of directors and supervisory board) have agreed on an overall Kabak package of 20 million euros.
A deal seems possible. Crisis Kabak could at least save something financially.
