FC Schalke 04 returns to the Bundesliga. In order for the comeback to be successful in the long term, the club from Gelsenkirchen has planned a budget of around 38 million euros. Not counting: increasing salaries.
Big salary increase: In order to re-establish itself in the Bundesliga, Schalke has budgeted around 38 million euros. But before the money can be invested, the club must first pay – to its own players. According to “Bild”, Schalke’s salaries will increase by around 35 percent as a result of promotion to the Bundesliga.
Reinforcement: It is also clear that reinforcement is needed. New strengths are needed in goal, attack and central midfield, while top performers from last season such as Terodde, Drexler and Latza have to worry about their regular places. A first candidate is in all probability Ko Itakura, who can be committed after his loan from Manchester City.
Losses: However, the Royal Blues also have to complain about departures. Above all, probably Malick Thiaw, who is reportedly aiming for a change. According to “Bild”, Schalke’s sports director Schröder would be willing to let the central defender go if a club offered around ten million euros for him.
