Di Marzio speaks of a fee in the €2-3 million range. This may be a fraction of the cost the Bundesliga club paid for the Serbian in 2015, but generates some much needed revenue for the recently relegated Westphalians. Getting an extra salary off the books whilst also acquiring some liquidity is not often possible for an organization in Schalke's position.
