Schalke 04 manager Jens Keller has failed to confirm whether Ghana star midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng will remain at the Veltins Arena next season. 

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to away from the Gelsenkirchen but nothing solid has been in place but Arsenal, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund are all reportedly interested in the midfielder.

Schalke are fighting to finish in an automatic Champions League spot for next season and manager Keller wants to keep his focus on their last game of the season against Nürnberg but he strangely failed to make a categorical statement on Boateng’s future at the club.

“It is not yet time to talk about the future. Before we think about the game against Nuremberg in the last game of the season. Subsequently, we will prepare for next season and we will see what players will be available with us and we will decide what to do. Boateng at this time playing as a central midfielder and at the moment is the best solution for us,” he told reporters.

Boateng arrived at the Veltins Arena from AC Milan in August 2013, second half of the current season and has contributed six crucial goals in 27 appearances for the club.

    Good player by all standards,Love or hate him.But are these club ready to buy those chronic injuries since they are part of the package.I learned he goes to Munich after each game for special therapy at a facility .How is gonna manage that elsewhere ?since one of his reasons for relocating to Germany was his chronic injuries ?
