They really tried everything at FC Schalke 04: the lead to the Kapiton, a regular place in the goal and a ‘pious contract offer – even the most intense advertising of the Kunigsblauen could not change to the goal of The Torh-ter Alexander N-bel.
The decision of the 23-year-old goalkeeper to move to Bayern Munich in the summer is of no use to fer Unverst-ndnis – not only at the club. Clemens Tunnies makes no secret of his frustration. ‘We’ve done everything we can to keep him on Schalke. Now we measure decision-icaps I don’t kill them,” the chef complained in the “Bild”.
Even if the confirmation of the Munchner is still pending, the transfer gilds as a foregone conclusion. It is understood that Nebel is signing a Funf-Year contract. With the record champion he can hope on a regular place – but for the time being on the bench. Because Manuel Neuer, who was also signed by FC Schalke in 2011, is currently untouchable as number one and, at the club’s request, is even expected to be able to stay until 2023, the more than ten years of the junior N-bel has been in the mix. Not least because of this, the former national goalkeeper and current “Sky” expert René Adler spoke of a dubious career plan: “The question for Alexander N’bel is: Is this the right step?”
Less critical observers point to the positive example of Marc-André ter Stegen, who in 2014 as a 22-year-old from Mönchengladbach to FC Barcelona. He has only played in the Champions League and in the cup competition, and has now earned a regular place with The Spanish champions.
Is Nunbel on loan from FC Bayern?
It is alleged that N’bel is to be built up at FC Bayern by occasional one to the number 1 after Neuer. The catch: His new intra-club competitor is gold-plated as extremely ambitious and reluctant to take his post even in Test matches. In a “kicker” interview, the national keeper did not rule out a continuation of his active careers even until the home European Championship in 2024. “I’m still fit and ready,” Neuer said.
The 2014 world champion was named in the circle of the national team N’bel as a potential successor in the DFB-Tor. “He can be,” Neuer said. “The signs are very good for him. He is a regular goalkeeper at Schalke and has played a good European Under-21 Championship.” Neuer also said in Tallinn in October before the Lunder game against Estonia: “Of the time he needs experience in the next time. But he’ll get that when he makes his plays.”
A memeful variant could be that N’bel borrowed in Monchen to get game practice. Dafo is a good example to Serge Gnabry: the attacker moved from Werder Bremen to FC Bayern in 2017 and loaned himself to 1899 Hoffenheim at his own request. In Kraichgau, Gnabry is preachy. After one season he returned to Munchen and prevailed. Egnabry also benefits from this in the national team.
It speaks to N’bel’s great ambitions that he will face the extreme competition in Munich. The East Westphalian does not lack self-refürse. “My big goal is the national team. I’m going to have my own ‘ra pregen’, the former U21 national keeper said in the summer.
Schalke ‘are losing their finances’
His goal of making the jump in the Lunw-Elf as quickly as possible is not what he is trying to achieve with his most jeng decision. Finally, he even has to fear for his regular place in Schalke’s goal. Because a move to FC Bayern is not very well received by the 04-anh-ngern. Neuer will also be whistled eight years after his move to guest appearances in his former homeland.
In the match against his supposed new club on 25 January in Munich, N’bel will not be in the goal of the Kunigsblauen and will be able to compete in a direct duel with Manuel Neuer. His four-game ban, which he received for his kung fu kick against Frankfurt’s Mijat Gacinovic, only expires after that.
Schalke have two reasons to err. Because the departure of Nunbel is not only a kind of thing, but also a financial loss. Again, a power current can go abl-se-free. This was already the case with Leon Goretzka (FC Bayern), Max Meyer (Crystal Palace), Joel Matip (Liverpool), Sead Kolasinac (FC Arsenal) and Kevin Kuranyi (Moscow). So that the district club lost 120 million euros in this decade.
