Bundesliga outfit eyeing Italian.
While he watches on as his former Chelsea side produce some rather erratic performances, Roberto Di Matteo could be packing his bags for a move to German outfit Schalke 04.
The Champions League winning manager and darling to Blues fans, suffered a rather hasty severance at the hands of Roman Abramovich in November last year.
However, talkSPORT reports that RDM is looking to bounce back into management with the interim head-coach at Schalke, Jens Keller, expected to vacate his current position when the Bundesliga season ends.
Di Matteo, who’s name is still chanted at Stamford Bridge following his dismissal three months ago, would like to redeem his reputation and steer the German side back to some kind of solid form.
Despite still being in the Champions League, Schalke’s domestic form has been dismall in recent months, having lost four of their last six games – including yesterdays 4-0 thrashing against Bayern Munich.
Current Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez is still facing the wrath of the Stamford Bridge contingent, with draws against Southampton, Reading, Swansea and League One side Brentford, in addition to the 3-2 comeback win for Newcastle last weekend, not helping to endear the ex-Liverpool boss to baying fans.
