Unsurprisingly, on the other hand, the radical upheaval that Royal Blue is facing when moving into the second class. According to ‘Bild’, no fewer than 17 professionals are about to take off in this very likely case. Some like Suat Serdar (23), Omar Mascarell (28), Matija Nastasic (27), Salif Sané (30) and Mark ut (29), thanks to contracts, should wash money into the empty till 2022. As well as Amine harit (23), which is under contract until 2024.
No new contracts
The loan players Sead Kolasinac (27), Frederik Rönnow (28), William (25) and Kilian Ludewig (20) cannot be firmly committed according to ‘Bild’. In addition, there are no sporting arguments for staying.
The same applies to the long injured Gonçalo Patience (26), whose purchase obligation (9.5 million euros) only applies if the class remains in the class.
Klaas Jan Huntelaar (37), Shkodran Mustafi (28) and Nabil Bentaleb (26) only have one contract in Gelsenkirchen until the end of the season. Even with this trio, the tabloid reports, a farewell in summer can be expected.
Left-back flop Hamza Mendyl (23) has a valid contract with Schalke until 2023, but Schalke still wants to get rid of the Moroccan. At Alessandro Schöpf (27) and Steven Skrzybski (28) there are no signs of such thought games, but negotiations have so far failed to materialize, according to ‘Bild’ information. Hardly a stone is left unturned at Schalke.
