The winter transfer window opens in just over a month. Then the sports directors of the clubs can make changes within their team and sign new players. The same applies to FC Schalke 04.
That’s why there is always wild speculation about possible new signings in advance. In this context, it was said that FC Schalke 04 should be interested in an absolute crowd favorite. However, fans are skeptical.
FC Schalke 04 interested in Gosens?
According to the “Gazzetta dello Sport”, FC Schalke are said to be interested in signing Robin Gosens from Inter Milan. The 28-year-old had already announced in various interviews that he was a big fan of the club from the Ruhr area. However, a change is unlikely.
According to the report, the Royal Blues are even said to be ready to take over the winger’s entire salary. This should amount to 2.5 million euros net. Quite a lot of money for the financially ailing Gelsenkirchen and a reason why the change will probably not come about. According to “Sport Bild”, Bayer Leverkusen should have refrained from making a commitment because the Italian club only wants to sell their player. A loan model, as the Royal Blues are aiming for, is therefore not in the interest of the Milanese.
FC Schalke 04: Fans don’t believe in Gosen’s interest
As quickly becomes clear on social networks, most S04 fans do not believe the rumor from Italy. “It’s always amusing to see that some foreign media still haven’t caught on to what has happened to S04 over the last few years,” wrote one follower on Twitter. He is obviously alluding to the financial situation of his club and the current table situation.
