Schalke are tuning up for the Bundesliga restart in Spain. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is their only fit striker, and it could have been worse for Schalke if he had gone to the Africa Cup of Nations.
He's been strongly linked with Barcelona and Bayern Munich in recent weeks but Leon Goretzka could still sign a new deal at Schalke, according to the club's sporting director. Goretzka's current contract expires in June.
Patrice Evra has left French club Marseille after being banned from European football until June 30, 2018. The veteran defender karate kicked one of the French club's fans before a recent Europa League match.
Domenico Tedesco's appointment flew under the radar and his team are doing the same. After a patchy start, Schalke are rising up the table and they welcome a Hamburg side treading water, as the Bundesliga returns.
Schalke have confirmed that forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will miss the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations but will be available for selection for Cameroon in the future, as club corrects initial statement.
