Schalke want Fulham's Riether

Schalke want to sign Fulham's Sascha Riether only one month after the defender signed permanent terms at Craven Cottage - but the German club will not pay over the odds.

Sascha Riether: The right-back was named Fulham's Player of the Season in 20

The right-back impressed last season when on loan from Cologne and subsequently earned a long-term deal in May.

But Schalke now want to take Riether back to Germany and their ability to offer UEFA Champions League football could work in their favour.

However, the Bundesliga club's general manager, Horst Heldt, does not want to pay a big fee for the 30-year-old.

"If the asking price is too high, it will not happen," Heldt is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.

Riether made 34 appearances in the Premier League in the last campaign and was named Fulham's Player of the Season.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
