Despite joining Schalke permanently in the summer, there is a possibility that Eintracht Frankfurt could buy back Rodrigo Zalazar, but it is unlikely reports Ruhr Nachrichten.
Schalke signed Zalazar in the summer for €1.50m after spending a year on loan from Frankfurt last season. The Uruguayan’s contract is until 2026 but Frankfurt have a buy-back option that is valid this coming summer and is said to be worth a single-digit million fee.
There is no interest in Frankfurt activating this buyback clause despite the likely departure of Daichi Kamada in the summer. The 23-year-old never played a game for Frankfurt having joined the club in 2019 on a free transfer from Atlético Malagueño
However, if Schalke do get relegated back to the 2.Bundesliga at the end of the season there will likely be offers for the midfielder.
Zalazar has scored once in 10 games for Schalke as they sit bottom of the Bundesliga seven points off of Bochum in 15th place.
