Franco di Santo considered as a flop at Schalke 04 and may be allowed to leave in the summer

When Schalke 04 signed Franco di Santo from Werder Bremen in 2015, they were hoping that they could get a prolific striker that will help them compete at the top of the Bundesliga. Indeed, the Argentina striker was quite prolific with Werder where he managed to score 14 goals in 27 appearances. This has prompted the Schalke 04 management to trigger his release clause which amounted to €6 million.
