Rafael van der Vaart is refusing to be drawn on speculation linking him with a move to Schalke.
The Spurs playmaker had three enjoyable years in Germany with Hamburg between 2005 and 2008, with his wife being a big celebrity in the country. According to reports Schalke are keen to have Rafa to link up with his Dutch colleague Klaas-Jan Huntelaar who has been a revelation in the Bundesliga.
Rafa is known to be very happy at Spurs but the lure of a return to Germany could prove to be too good a lure to resist. His comments below are a bit worrying, granted he wants his full focus to be on Euro 2012 – but if he is happy at Spurs, maybe he should come out and say so?
“I won’t say anything about it,” he told De Telegraaf.
“At the moment I am fully focused on Euro 2012.”
