The agent of Holland international Ibrahim Afellay admits his future is up in the air - but he has not ruled out of the prospect of extending his stay at Schalke.
Afellay, 26, moved to Barcelona during the 2010/11 season but struggled to make an impact at the Nou Camp and was linked with a switch to the Premier League, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham among his suitors.
In the end he joined Schalke on a season-long loan deal, but injuries have hampered his stay in Germany and he is currently sidelined.
And his representative Karel Jansen insists he must enter talks with both Barcelona and Schalke before determining his client’s next destination.
"At the moment nothing is clear. Besides, we are in March and it’s still early, so we will see." Jansen told TuttoMercatoWeb.
"We have to talk to Barcelona. Here too [at Schalke] the situation is unclear. We will talk to them too.
"You never know in life, everything is open. Serie A is an interesting competition but at the moment we have not had any requests from Italy."
