Schalke chief; Schneider says Mustafi deal a welcome idea
Just as they were agreeing to send Ozan Kabak away to Liverpool, S04 were signing Mustafi on a free transfer from Arsenal.
Mustafi has joined S04 initially to the end of the season.
“You have to look at this transfer from two perspectives: From an economic point of view, the transfer of Ozan Kabak makes a lot of sense for Schalke 04, especially with a view to the effects of the corona pandemic,” says Schneider.
“In addition, we are convinced that with Shkodran Mustafi we have been able to sign a very good central defender who will fill the sporting void that Ozan is undoubtedly leaving behind.”
