Inter outcast Joao Mario is leaning towards the Bundesliga, with interest from Schalke 04 dependant on Sebastian Rudy.
According to Spox.com in Germany, Schalke would only be prepared to make a bid for the Portugal international if first choice Rudy fell through.
Bayern Munich midfielder Rudy is so far undecided between Schalke and RB Leipzig.
Only if Rudy opted for Leipzig would Schalke 04 then make a firm offer for Joao Mario.
