Schalke Confirm Interest In Chelsea’s Michael Ballack

By Chris Wright

Schalke 04 have expressed a strong interest in taking Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack back to the Bundesliga, should the 33-year-old chose not to re-new his contract at the end of the current season.

Schalke’s coach Felix Magath has been quoted in today’s Berliner Kurier as saying;

“We are indeed interested in signing Michael Ballack. I’m confident that he’s ready to accept a pay cut if he decides to return to the Bundesliga this summer.”

However, Die Königsblauen may face competition for Ballack from Italy, as reigning Serie A champions Inter Milan are also known to be monitoring the veteran German international’s situation at Stamford Bridge.

In other Chelsea news, French striker Nicolas Anelka is reportedly ready to sign a two-year contract extension that would tie him to the club until 2013.

    Must be an Arsenal fan saying the first comment! Ballack is a superb midfielder that does his job well and quietly, Anelka last year was EPL Golden Boot and have you noticed how he rarely loses the ball and glides past players with ease.
