Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick has been linked with a summer switch to Chelsea and Premier League rivals Manchester United and comparisons with Dutch legend Marco van Basten will only enhance his reputation as the summer transfer window draws closer.
“A ds of an important club compared him to (Marco) Van Basten, it is a striking comparison, but I’m convinced in two to three years he will be in the top three strikers in the world,” Dario Canovi, the agent of Schick, told TMW Radio via Tribal Football.
“He has everything: class, tactical flexibility, physicality, a strong mind.
“He speaks 3-4 languages, he is one of those on which I can see doing anything. He will be a champion.”
