Schalke want Van der Vaart, claims agent
Rafael van der Vaart's agent has claimed Bundesliga outfit Schalke are interested in taking his client to Germany.
Schalke are aiming to add quality to their squad this summer ahead of another tilt at the Champions League next season. One of the club's main battles, however, will be holding on to star striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who is stalling over a new contract. Schalke are hoping a move for fellow Dutchman Van der Vaart will convince Huntelaar to stay. Speculation has been mounting over Schalke's interest in Van der Vaart. Now, Van der Vaart's representative Robert Geerlings has confirmed they are tracking the Netherlands ace. "I can confirm that Schalke are interested in Van der Vaart," the player's representative told Kicker. Spurs, Van der Vaart's current club, are expected to fight to keep hold of one of their key players, though the lure of Champions League football could turn the midfielder's head.
