Barcelona’s centre-back on the market, Jean-Clair Todibo, is set to leave the club this January, and there are plenty of candidates for his signature.
AC Milan was almost a surefire destination for Barcelona’s youngster.
However, the negotiations stalled recently. Schalke saw the opportunity and now they are the closest to signing Todibo, according to Di Marzio.
The centre-back impressed with his Champions League performance against Inter.
Given a huge competition for centre-back spots, Todibo was forced to look for a move.
Barca will probably bring him back at the end of the season. It’s still unknown if this is a loan or a full transfer with a buyback clause, however.
