FC Schalke 04 | Transfer Check: How to Plan the Royal Blues in Winter


In a few weeks the winter transfer phase for the Bundesliga clubs will begin. At FC Schalke 04, despite a strong first round, some changes indicate. sport.de looks at the plans of the Royal Blues: who could go? Who should come FC Schalke in the transfer check: The goalkeepersExisting staff: Alexander Nübel, Markus Schubert, Michael LangerThe situation Absolutely no need for action! Nübel, who has been promoted to captain, lives up to the responsibility so far, convinced on and off the pitch as a leading player. There is nothing to shake his status as number one. Should the 23-year-old, who was courted by FC Bayern, leave the club after the season, his designated successor will be ready. Under-21er Markus Schubert shuffles his hooves, pushing for more time. It is quite possible that the former Dresdner will rise in the internal hierarchy in summer. Then, however, would have a new representative her.Wer could go? -Who should come? -FC Schalke in the transfer check: The AbwehrProfessional staff: Matija Nastasic, Salif Sané, Ozan Kabak, Benjamin Stambouli, Juan Miranda, Bastian Oczipka, Jonjoe Kenny, Jonas CarlsThe situation No other part of the Schalke team is as high-profile as the central defense. The veterans Nastasic, Sané and Stambouli clear away reliably. Even newcomer Kabak has established itself after initial difficulties. The only drawback: The quartet is prone to injury. Correspondingly often had coach David Wagner last rebuilt his back four. Probably the one who has such a choice! Less luxurious is the situation on the defensive wings. Bastian Oczipka (left) and loaner Jonjoe Kenny (right) are long-time favorites in their positions, doing a solid job. They do not have to fear their place because there are no equivalent alternatives in the squad. Oczipka competitor Juan Miranda seems to freak with the Bundesliga, the Barca talent is still waiting for his first Bundesliga appearance. Who could go? Jonas Carls, who could possibly be lent for lack of professional perspective. In the Schalke Regionalliga team, however, the 22-year-old is a fixture.Who should come? An additional option for the full-back positions is her, ideally an all-rounder. But the budget does not produce a real punch. Therefore, the formerly-traded former Wolfsburg Ricardo Rodríguez should play no role in the plans of the miners. FC Schalke in the transfer check: The midfieldExisting staff: Omar Mascarell, Weston McKennie, Suat Serdar, Nabil Bentaleb, Nassim Boujellab, Levent Mercan, Daniel Caligiuri, Alessandro Schöpf, Amine HaritThe situationAlthough not a single external newcomer has been fetched, the Schalke midfield is transformed. Several actors labeled as flops or followers have an astonishing development behind them. Suddenly, Omar Mascarell shines as a prudent actor skillfully staging the recently extremely dangerous Suat Serdar or whirlwind Amine Harit. Reminder: All three players were still in the preseason as Sorgenkinder.Unter David Wagner plays Schalke 04 fast, straightforward pressing football. A style that suits mentalite fighters like Weston McKennie. If you're looking for a hair in royal blue soup then you're probably going to end up with creativity. Another strong figure eight would certainly not harm the team, but probably only in the summer on the agenda. Who could go? Nabil Bentaleb! The Franko-Algerian is FC Schalke's number one contender. Too often, the 25-year-old missed the necessary discipline and pulled down the whole team. More than once Bentaleb was suspended, later a Meniscus tear knocked him out of action. The injury prevented an earlier farewell of the left foot, which was in August just before a change to Werder Bremen stood. That the Hanseatic League will start soon a new start, may be doubted. SVW manager Frank Baumann has categorically ruled out transfer activities in the winter. However, Schalke will try their best to get Bentaleb (contract until 2021) out of the payroll as soon as possible. Allegedly, the problem-pro collected annually proud five million euros.Wer should come? -FC Schalke in the transfer check: The attackPresent staff: Benito Raman, Rabbi Matondo, Steven Skrzybski, Mark Uth, Guido Burgstaller, Ahmed Kutucu, Fabian ReeseThe situationIn contrast to the rest of the team, the offensive department of Gelsenkirchener in the Hinserie 19/20 was well below their potential. Of the seven outside and center strikers in the squad convinced not a single constant. Hope makes the rising trend in 6.5-million-man Benito Raman, who seems after a weak start on Schalke slowly free-swimming. But the Belgian can not throw the store up front alone. The crux: From the other attackers goes so far from danger. Rabbi Matondo (1), Steven Skrzybski (0), Mark Uth (0), Guido Burgstaller (0), Ahmed Kutucu (1) and Fabian Reese (0) only scored two goals together. Especially in the center of the shoe. The fact that the completely luckless Burgstaller counted in nine of 13 league games for the first eleven speaks volumes. A guy like Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is painfully missing.Who could go? Skrzybski and Reese are completely out of the woods with Wagner, both want and should leave in the winter. The former was recently brought into his ex-club Union Berlin in the conversation, but his current salary for the Iron should not be bolster sein.Anders is the situation with top talent Kutucu. The 19-year-old is dissatisfied because he is used in the current season only irregularly. However, he objected to burgeoning exchange speculation: "I do not know where these rumors came from, at least not from me, because I do not have these thoughts at all." Who's to come? A new nine! However, the miners do not want to invest exorbitant million sums. So who comes into question? Too many names have not yet been traded on Schalke. One who has appeared more often is Mariano Díaz from Real Madrid. According to "Sky" S04 to think as in the summer about a transfer of the attacker from the Dominican Republic. Problem: Ironically, the hated territory rival BVB advertises according to media reports also to the 26-year-olds – and in contrast to the Royal Blue inserts in the Champions or Europa League offer.
