White Hart Lane and St James’ Park outfits given green light on potential move for Spanish legend.
Raul has refused to rule out a move to England following his release from Real Madrid on Monday.
The iconic former captain at the Bernabeu is now without a club and weighing up his options, with Schalke reportedly favourites to land his signature.
Whilst revealing that Schalke have approached him however, the 33-year-old also confessed that he would be interested in a move to England, with Tottenham and Newcastle rumoured to be keeping tabs on him.
“The German team is interested in me and I have had very deep discussions with them,” he said.
“In a few days I will know whether I’ll be going to the Bundesliga, but there are other teams that are also interested. What is clear is that my future lies in Germany or England.”
“I have had the feeling (for a while) that this is the time to move on. I have worn the Real Madridshirt for many years. (Sky Sports)
During a tearful goodbye press conference the 33 year old Real Madrid legend seemed to suggest that a deal to move to Schalke is by no means a done deal. Harry Redknapp was then quoted as saying that he was pushing ahead with talks to bring in players who are available on free transfers, put two and two together and perhaps a move to White Hart Lane is a distinct possibility?
The Spaniard has a season or two in the tank and could be of great use to anyone willing to make him an offer he would find hard to refuse.
