Todibo’s continuity at Schalke is in the air

first_imgThe coronavirus also jeopardizes the continuity of Jean-Clair Todibo in Schalke 04. The player, on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season, he had managed to recover his best version in the mining table, but the uncertainty as to the economic consequences due to the stoppage caused by the Covid-19 hinder, and much, the future of the French central in the German set. Those in Gelsenkirchen have a purchase option set at 25 million euros, a sum that, taking into account the current situation, it seems practically unaffordable to the sixth place in the Bundesliga.Schalke’s intention remains to tie the player, who left the Camp Nou in January to stop at the Veltins Arena. He earned gallons to make up for Ozan Kabak’s loss in the middle of the mining lag and was voted Player of the Month for February by the Schalke fans. Taking into account that the club has Kabak, Sané, Nastasic and Thiaw as central teams for the coming season, everything points, today, to the fact that The dome of the German team will think twice whether or not to make the purchase option effective to end up taking over the services of Todibo. It’s more, Schalke accumulated a deficit of 26 million in the last year, so everything indicates that debts increase further due to the break through which the highest German competition is also passing. It is true that the sports management of the miners, headed by Michael Reschke, maintains a great relationship with the culé box. However, Benjamin Stambouli and Timo Becker’s contracts also expire at the end of the season. Renewing the latter seems like a much more viable option than the 25 kilos that would have to be paid for Todibo. Extending the assignment for another year seems like the only option when it comes to retaining him.last_img read more
