Speaking to Bild, his team of representatives said:
"The transfer to Werder is dead. Nabil will stay at Schalke."
According to Bild, Bentaleb faces a long spell on the sidelines after undergoing knee surgery this morning.
The central midfielder fell out of favor at Veltins-Arena last season due to disciplinary issues. Since joining Schalke from Tottenham for €19 million in 2017, the 24-year-old has made 97 appearances, scoring 19 goals and making nine assists.
