Schalke 04 are in talks with Chelsea on turning the loan deal of Ghana’s Abdul Rahman Baba in to a permanent deal. However, the contract of Baba with Schalke, will have a clause that will consider if he is 100% fit from his knee injury.
Baba suffered the cruciate ligament rupture of his knee during the Africa cup in January. His injry is so serious that he is not expected to recover before autumn.
Currently, Baba is undergoing rehabilitaion in Schalke, where he is in good hands.
If the deal come to fruition, Baba will have the chance to work with a coach, Markus Weinzierl, who trusts his talent and rejuvenate his career with Schalke. It is a win-win for both side.
