Schalke is going through a crisis and they have decided to call their former forward Raul Gonzalez to ask him for advice on how the club could recover.
Schalke has also contacted other former players to try to find a way out of their ongoing crisis.
Meanwhile, they also see Raul as a candidate at Real Madrid as the future head coach of the first team, though they are aware that he should gain more coaching experience before making the leap to the bench at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Although no official offer has been made, there are some at the Bundesliga club who see the current Real Madrid Castilla coach as the perfect person to come in and turn things around say.
After departing Los Blancos, Raul left his mark at Schalke, with whom he played for a few years between 2010 and 2012.
Having led the team to a DFB-Pokal and a DFL-Supercup, he became a hero in Gelsenkirchen before joining Al Sadd in Qatar.
