In an interview with WAZ, Schalke 04 midfielder Max Meyer has stated that he hopes to decide on his future at the club by summer.
“This is something I can not say yet, because I hopefully have a long career ahead of me. In football, it is too fast-paced to plan ahead. When I read something [about rumours], I know that there is nothing to it, otherwise I would have heard from my advisor. I am quite relaxed. I have all the time in the world and no pressure, because my contract still has a year-and-a-half on it. Regardless [if Schalke qualify for Europe], I believe that there will probably be a decision about my future by the summer.”
When asked about new contract talks: “No, not yet.”
On wearing the famous No. 7 shirt once worn by Raul.
“It is very special to be able to wear this number. Raul has been an idol here and a legend at Real Madrid. It is an honour to get a piece of it.”
