Schalke general director Horst Heldt has announced to German magazine ‘Kicker’, that they have reached an agreement with Al Jazira for the transfer of Peruvian international Jefferson Farfan.

“There is already an agreement in principle and the move will go through if the player completes the medical examinations.”

The sale of Farfan could get the German club the money to complete the transfer of Inter playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri for which the German club expects the white smoke soon.
