sounds good but how far down the line are we and how realistic a prospect is it of gettig him here?

Club not approached as far as I know, the usual tapping up scenario, find out if the player would come, what sort of package is he after, then make your move.

just picture it, raul banging one in in the 89th minute....and streams of supporters walking past from the riverside!

Walking to the corner hands held aloft bowing in unison to the new King of Ewood Park. Hope they remember to change the words from Shearer.

I suppose any chance we have partially depends on how close he is to Salgado (who'll probably never be dropped if Raul came). It would be something to see an all-time Real Madrid legend play for Blackburn. I can't think of a better veteran star player to go for really. Ruud V-N is not the player he was, Drogba is totally unrealistic, Klose only plays for Germany, and Luca Toni has just moved ;).

If I understand correct he might leave Schalke 04 on a free after the season in 2012 because they are not willing to renew his £70k p/w contract. Which also might mean they will try to sell him this summer instead of risking losing him on a free.

Which seems accurate since he signed 28 of June 2010 according to Wiki.

Translate from a spanish article:

Schalke 04 will consider whether it is economically feasible to renovate exmadridista Raul Gonzalez, whose contract expires in 2012, according to sports daily reported today "Sport Bild". Schalke's sporting director Horst Heldt, Germanic recognized publication that does not fit between his desire "to let go of Raul", 34, star of the team, but acknowledged that before extending his contract next summer, will assess what is the best interest of the entity.

"Also in the issue we must decide what Raul sports and financially more interesting for the team," Heldt said in reference to more than seven million euros charged by the exmadridista season.

This medium has already published in July, according to unconfirmed sources within officially the entity intends not to renew Raul, who was the team's top scorer last season with 19 goals and has the sympathy of the fans.

The Spanish soccer team arrived in Gelsenkirchen last season, with the help of then club coach, Felix Magath, and since signing for the Bundesliga international standing. With the relief of the technician by Ralf Rangnick, mid-season, the situation has completely changed for Raul, who no longer enters the current coach's future plans for their lead.

Spanish Rangnick considers that it lacks "spark" to play the point and aims to "rejuvenate" the squad, a move that affects other figures of Schalke 04, as Christoph Metzelder (30 years) and Mathias Schober (35 years).

Raul had declared its readiness since last April to extend his contract beyond 2012, and in the German media had ensured that it was negotiating the renewal with the club.

It might be possible.

We were ready to spend those amount on wages for Jermaine Jones and Roque Santa Cruz last year. Salgado might talk him into joining the club. He might want to play in EPL before ending his career.

He would be an amazing signing. I wasnt aware that he had 19 goals last season and that was for a struggling Schalke side!
