Amine Harit is currently on loan from Schalke 04 to Olympique Marseille. The Bundesliga club wants to get Harit off the payroll permanently and can almost plan with it. Because: Marseille has an obligation to buy from Moroccans.
That Amine Harit is an outstanding footballer is an open secret. The fact that things didn't really fit between the Moroccan and Schalke 04 in the end, too. Since the attacking midfielder was the absolute top earner in Gelsenkirchen with a salary of more than five million euros and the salary structure was in excess, the club pushed for a sale this summer already spent last season on loan at OM. This time, the cooperation could become permanent. Because, as reported by the picture on Sunday evening, there is a purchase obligation of five million euros in Harit's loan agreement between Schalke and Marseille. That's below market value, but still a way for Schalke to get Harit off the payroll. After all, the miners are still paying a salary of 1.5 million euros for the Moroccan this season. In the end, Schalke would leave the Harit deal with 3.5 million euros - provided the purchase obligation applies. The clause is tied to 15 competitive appearances for OM. So far, Harit has been in the starting eleven in two games and has been a substitute in three. Games played as wild cards are counted as half a bet. Theoretically, Harit could make 15 appearances by the New Year, giving Schalke more leeway in terms of squad planning in winter.
