FC Schalke 04: shock for all fans! This star could leave the club now
Bitter news for everyone FC Schalke 04Fans! According to a report, the financial situation could now cause the club to let one of the few “top performers” go.
The S04 professional had just extended his contract.
FC Schalke 04: Does the club surprise with this sale?
Ironically, Schalke should not necessarily want to keep the best goalscorer of the past season, according to the “Bild”: The future of Matthew Hoppe is still uncertain at the moment.

Schalke can possibly get good money for the American. According to the report, there is specific interest in Hoppe from an Italian club not named. With a suitable offer, S04 is ready to part with the 20-year-old. How high this would have to be, however, is unclear.
Curious: Schalke only made Hoppe a professional in February and provided him with a contract until 2023. “Matthew Hoppe took his chance and showed that he has the potential to establish himself permanently in the Bundesliga,” said Jochen Schneider, the sports director at the time, justifying the move.
More current Schalke news:
Hoppe’s start with the A-team was almost vertical: if he still had his problems with the Schalke amateurs in the regional league with just one goal from 16 league games, he immediately picked up speed with the professionals, even scoring a hat trick against Hoffenheim.
Hoppe apparently does not see the current sporting management as indispensable since the engagement of Simon Terodde. Since Benito Raman is likely to remain, another offensive man is probably dispensable.
FC Schalke 04: New fan favorite is already in the starting blocks
Should Hoppe actually be sold, a newcomer could already take his place as a fan favorite: Reinhold Ranftl. You can read here how the Austrian has already won over some Schalke fan hearts >> (the)
