Schalke beat Bayern and Milan to €15m defender, extend USMNT star

Schalke have signed Ozan Kabak and announced a contract extension for Weston McKennie on Sunday.

Kabak had a €15m release clause in his VfB Stuttgart contract.

The 19-year-old only joined Stuttgart in January but was attracting interest from Bayern Munich and Milan.

Though his agent spoke to both clubs, the Turkish centre-back opted to move to Schalke, where he is more likely to gain time as a first team regular.

Schalke also announced a new contract for US international Weston McKennie.

The midfielder has signed a new deal to 2024.
