On Sunday, sporting director Christian Heidel from Bundesliga club FC Schalke 04 had announced that they wanted to “clarify” the situation of the woeful midfielder Max Meyer “at short notice”, because there is already the next bad news for the Royal Blues.

Although it is reportedly quite in it: 5.5 million euros wave the 22-year-olds per season.
According to information from the “Bild” S04 coach Domenico Tedesco the midfielder has also given opportunities to rise in the team council and from the upcoming season as a vice-captain to act in order to take more responsibility.
After the fixed departure of Leon Goretzka Meyer should be held not only as a regular player, but also as a new leader and identification figure of the club. But the time is running and the signs are more likely to say goodbye.
