That would be an absolute hammer: According to a media report, FC Schalke 04 is currently negotiating the return of ex-striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar!
Jochen Schneider is said to have been in the Netherlands at the beginning of the week, the supervisory board was informed of all developments.
According to “Sport 1”, the sports board approached the committee with his idea in December. In addition, the striker is said to have been an issue in the S04 cabin.
Ajax coach Erik ten Hag has now confirmed Schalke’s interest. “You know that there are rumors in this phase. I know of the interest, but I don’t know where that will lead. Schalke 04 is in trouble and Klaas-Jan is an icon there,” said the 50-year-old. ESPN “.
Ten Hag also emphasized: “I would really like to keep him at Ajax.”
Huntelaar speaks up
Huntelaar himself also spoke up. “Schalke 04 asked Ajax about me,” said the striker after Ajax’s 3-1 win over Twente Enschede, in which he became the match winner with two last-minute goals.
“I told them that I would think about it and discuss it with Ajax,” added Huntelaar, adding: “Ajax is stable, I might be able to celebrate a championship here. Schalke have big problems, they need me more.” The veteran wants to enjoy the victory first and “sleep over it for a night”.
Ajax sign Haller as a Huntelaar competitor
Huntelaar was used in 240 competitive games for the miners between 2010 and 2017. During this time, the goalgetter scored an impressive 126 goals.
At Ajax, his chances have fallen dramatically recently. Although Huntelaar is highly valued by ten Hag and enjoys cult status with fans, there should be no way around ex-Frankfurt Sébastien Haller, who recently signed on for 22.5 million euros.
According to “Bild” and “Sport Bild”, Huntelaar recently contacted an S04 professional to talk about a possible return to Gelsenkirchen. Basically he is “not averse” to the idea.
So far it was considered certain that the long-time national player would end his career after the season. The Orange star had only announced his retirement plan in mid-December. It is unclear whether a renewed commitment to Schalke would change that.
The fact that Huntelaar can still score goals is proven by his quota in the current Eredivisie season: In 382 minutes of play, spread over ten games, the attacker netted five times and prepared another goal.
At the relegation-threatened FC Schalke the “Hunter” could take over the vacant position in the storm center. After Sead Kolasinac (on loan from Arsenal FC) he would be the second return this winter.
