Schalke 04 are in talks with Chelsea on turning the loan deal of Ghana’s Abdul Rahman Baba into 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 injury is so serious that he is not expected to recover before autumn.
Currently, Baba is undergoing rehabilitation in Schalke, where he is in good hands.
If the deal comes 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 sides.
