Shaqiri agent: ‘Ask Schalke’

Xherdan Shaqiri has reportedly rejected Schalke, but his agent insists ‘it’s not a problem on our side’.

The Swiss winger’s exit is believed to be key to the Nerazzurri financing a move for Ivan Perisic of Wolfsburg, but reports emerged earlier today that he was determined to stay at San Siro.

“For now, Schalke is the only option,” Arber Sakiri explained, speaking to Calciomercato.

“Xherdan has already said it’s a great club. Why has the deal stalled? You’ll have to ask Schalke, it’s not a problem on our side.”

It has been suggested that the former Bayern Munich man will try to fight for his place in the first six months of the season, before considering a move away in January.
