Jean-Clair Todibo joins Schalke on loan from Barcelona

Schalke 04 have officially confirmed the signing of Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo on loan for the rest of the 2019/20 season, WhoScored reported.

Prior to moving to the Bundesliga, Todibo was on the verge of joining AC Milan but the deal fell through at the last minute with the Serie A deciding to sign Simon Kjaer from Atalanta instead.

The 20-year-old has struggled to gain game time with the senior team and now he has been granted the opportunity to play regularly with Milan.

Todibo according to WhoScored played 77 minutes for Barcelona but he is remembered for his impressive displays in Barca's 2-1 victory over Inter Milan in December 2019.

However, despite his performance, the move away from is still inevitable as he hadn't managed to fit into recently sacked manager Ernesto Valverde's first-team plans.

Jean-Clair Todibo's style of play

  • Likes to dribble
  • Likes to play short passes
  • Clears the ball out of defence often
  • Commits fouls often
