Antonio Conte spoke to the media on Friday ahead of their Premier League fixture. The Chelsea manager stated that Baba Rahman to Schalke could be “an interesting option.”
The Italian continued: “Baba is recovering from a bad injury. I haven’t had the possibility to see him in training with us, only once or twice but he wasn’t ready to have a full training session”
Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel confirmed that the Bundesliga club are in talks with Chelsea while talks with Baba would take “just minutes.”
Baba spent part of the 2016/17 Bundesliga season on loan at Schalke while it’s widely reported that the 23-year-old will once again sign on loan.
