Report: 1860 Munich interested in adding Haji Wright on-loan


Haji Wright is reportedly being linked to German third-tier side 1860 Munich.

According to Kicker, Munich is after the striker’s services for the 2019-20 season, but financially would be better suited to acquire him on-loan. Wright, 20, is coming off 15-goal haul with both Schalke and the Bundesliga club’s U-23 side this season.

Wright made his Bundesliga debut this season, scoring once in seven senior appearances. He returned to Schalke’s U-23 side in order for consistent playing time and finished with 14 goals and five assists in 22 league matches. Wright helped Schalke’s U-23 side earn promotion.

Wright has also worked his way through the U.S. Soccer ranks, recently appearing twice for the U-23 side in March friendlies. He’s also appeared domestically with Sandhausen during his time in Germany.

Munich finished 12th in the 3. Liga last season, totaling 47 points in 38 matches. Should Wright make the move to 1860 Munich, he will become the club’s second acquisition this summer.



  1. Schalke was a very poor team last year and spent most of the season trying to stay out of the relegation zone. At one point they were even playing McKennie as a forward. If Wright isn’t capable of getting minutes on a bad team (even sub minutes) in B-1 he should look for a loan to a B-2 side. If none come calling, than it may be time to think about coming to MLS like Hyndman & Parks.

  2. Damn, 3rd division though?? Given how long he’s been in Germany, it’s about time he stayed with at least a Bundesliga, or am I wrong??

    • No man you are right I had the same reaction as you. Schalke should just use him off the bench once they have a comfortable lead.
