?21-year old Roma striker Patrik Schick has been once again linked with a move away from Italy.
Having missed out on a move to Juventus in the summer, Schick has now been linked to Manchester United and the Spanish giants Barcelona or Real Madrid.
He told Czech media outlet ?Reporter Magazin: “Money? I take it as motivation, and I hope that in a few years I can move to an even bigger club where logically I’ll be paid even more – that motivation has always helped me a lot.”
“It’s not really possible to move much higher [than Roma] but there are a few clubs… let’s say Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester United.”
For now though, Schick is hoping to enhance his reputation at Roma. He is on loan at I Giallorossi from Sampdoria, but is yet to make a real impact at the club.
Schick did stand out though in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship over the summer. Despite the Czech Republic finishing bottom of their group, Schick starred in their 3-1 win over Italy and found the net in a 4-2 defeat to Denmark that condemned the side to an early flight home.
If given a sustained run in the first team at Roma, Schick will be hoping to rediscover some of the form that saw him score 11 goals for Sampdoria last season and that could catch the eye of one of Europe’s biggest clubs.
