After tough negotiations, RB Leipzig and Schalke 04 have apparently agreed on a change of sports director Rouven Schröder.
As the sports picture reported that Schröder should start his new job with the Saxons on March 1st. The transfer fee is therefore 500,000 euros.
Schalke’s sports director Peter Knäbel confirms on Sky90 that “we received an offer that fully meets the conditions that we agreed with Rouven when he resigned and we suspended the contract. And so I assume that that the change will be completed in the coming days.”
In the case of cup winners Leipzig, Schröder forms a team with sports director Max Eberl in the sporting leadership, the former Gladbach manager has been in office since last December.
The 47-year-old Schröder resigned from the Royal Blues last October. Before that, he had worked for several years as sports director and sports director at FSV Mainz 05.
