Raul leaves Real for......

38 posts in this topic

Real Madrid striker Raul has reportedly agreed a deal to switch to German side Schalke 04.

The 33-year-old former Spain international has been a stalwart for Madrid in recent years, although he has now fallen down the pecking order at the Bernabeu.

Raul is rumoured to have already signed a two-year contract with the Bundesliga side, although the deal until June 2011 will not be finalised until he returns from his holiday, according to the Spanish press.

He is thought to have received other offers from clubs in the USA and Qatar, but a move to Germany is his preferred option.

Raul is set to move for no fee, as new Real manager Jose Mourinho tries to build a new squad after taking the reins in the Spanish capital last month.

Raul's salary is reportedly €4million (£3.3m) per annum at Schalke and he has the chance to play in the UEFA Champions League next season after they finished second in the Bundesliga last term.

The experienced striker has been a professional with Real for 16 years and is regarded as a legend among the club's fans.

However, despite the speculation, Schalke manager Felix Magath insists a deal has not been agreed yet.

"We are interested in him and are negotiating with his agent," Magath told Bild newspaper.

"The player has not decided yet and wants time until the end of July to make up his mind.

"It would be a huge signing for Schalke and the whole Bundesliga.

Real Madrid legend Raul is set to leave the club tomorrow after spending 16 years plying his trade at the Bernabeu. The Madrid club have announced that they are to hold a farewell ceremony for their iconic number 7 and all-time leading goalscorer on Monday to mark the end of an era.

The 33-year-old made his first team debut for Los Blancos in 1994, having originally started his career across town with city rivals Atletico Madrid, and has since established himself as one of the Spanish giant's best players of all time.

Despite his prolific strike record for Real Madrid, the former Spanish international has seen his first team opportunities restricted over the past few seasons as fresh blood has been brought in to reinvigorate the club. His expressed desire to keep playing first team football thus made a move inevitable despite efforts to keep him at the Bernabeu.

Raul has been targetted by Harry Redknapp at Spurs, but is now widely expected to move to German club Schalke who have long coveted his services.

The official announcement of Raul's departure comes in the wake of this weekend's announcement that midfielder Guti is also set to leave the Bernabeu.

Raul apparently said he could be coming to either England or Germany and his move to Schalke isn't complete yet.
