Schalke return conceivable for Rakitic? "In the end you never know..."

Ivan Rakitic also spent a certain part of his career, which is slowly coming to an end, at Schalke 04. He thinks a potential return is unlikely, but you never know what will happen next.

Ivan Rakitic played for Schalke for three and a half years. It was his first major transfer when he moved from FC Basel to the Ruhr area in the summer of 2007 for five million euros.

He completed 156 appearances for the Gelsenkirchen team, in which he scored 16 goals himself and directly prepared 29 more. During this time, the central midfielder was a very important part of the team and almost always a regular.

However, he has been playing in Spain since 2011: first three and a half years at FC Sevilla before he played for FC Barcelona until the summer of 2020. Since then he has been back in Seville. Now 34 years old, the Swiss-born Croatian is slowly but surely approaching the end of his career. So how about a late return to the S04?

A question that Sky asked him. "Let's see [...], it's difficult at the moment, it's slowly coming to an end. I'm convinced that I still have a few years ahead of me. I have two daughters, we have our lives here, it's going to be difficult to leave Spain here," he initially kept a low profile.

He still left a small back door open: "In the end you never know, maybe Gerald Asamoah will come by tomorrow..."

One thing is clear: Many Schalke fans would approve of a return, after all, Rakitic is remembered positively. In addition, he is still playing in the Champions League this season. Nevertheless, he would have to forego a large amount of money for this already abstract idea.
