Schalke will most likely have to do without Jonjoe Kenny next season. The loan will return to Everton FC “99%”.
Although the season for FC Schalke had started so well with the new coach David Wagner, after the 26th matchday one can only come to one (interim) conclusion: It is another lost time for Royal Blue, which is still “sobering” would be described too positively. The desolate 0: 4 pack in the district derby was the preliminary low for S04.
But in the midst of this bleak season there are – at least a few – bright spots. One of them is Jonjoe Kenny, who was loaned out by Everton last summer and who, despite low expectations, went straight to becoming a top performer. The problem: Schalke has no purchase option for the right-back.
Since Schalke is not financially bedded on roses, a fixed transfer in the summer would probably not be possible either way. The only hope is to be able to borrow Kenny for another year. “It looks like we don’t have the financial strength to buy it,” David Wagner said recently Sky Sports known.
Schalke at Kenny probably has no chance of renewed lending
The chances that Schalke will succeed with a new loan offer to Everton FC are almost zero. Sky has now learned that “the toffees want the 23-year-old to be 99 percent back”. Which is not really a big surprise. The English clubs also have to tighten their belts a little bit – a “newcomer” comes for free.
In addition to Kenny, Schalke is also known to threaten to lose Jean-Clair Todibo, who basically has the same problem as with Kenny: The defender is only on loan for S04 – the royal blue have a purchase option for Todibo, but this is at 25 Millions of euros are way too high for Schalke to pull. FC Barcelona, like Everton, will not get involved in another loan deal because the Catalans in turn need fresh money.
The lending transactions, which at first glance were so great, now turn out to be a trap, because Schalke will not only lose two top performers in the summer, but will not earn a tired cent with them. But that was a little bit used to S04 from previous years.
