German Bundesliga giants Schalke 04 have officially established contact with representatives of Ghana forward Jordan Ayew over a possible summer move.

According to reports by Get French Football News, Schalke manager Jens Keller has maintained his interest in the attacker and has initiated talks with the player's agent Willie McKay.

However, no concrete agreement has been reached between Olympique Marseille who own the player and the German side and the Veltins Arena club could change their mind over the striker after watching him for Ghana at the 2014 World Cup.

While Schalke have been linked with the striker, Willie McKay confirmed last week that English side West Bromwich Albion are also monitoring the striker.

The 22-year-old scored 6 Ligue 1 goals last season.

    Could some of these things be some of the reasons this young man is being so selfish? In my opinion his failure in Marseilles one of the top european clubs at all standards despite all the opportunities he is been given is what we witnessed in the afcon 2012 and this world cup, SELFISHNESS. Why do i say so? There are some players who are carved in such a way that their attributes conform with selfishness in order to score goals. For instance C Ronaldo depends on his speed and the ability to take defenders on or set pieces in order to score goals. Moreso he has already made his name and now a big player so others will be prepared to serve him. Therefore despite his selfishness he still scores goals. However, there are others who depends on assisting for others to assist them also. I believe Messi falls in this category. Even that the latter is always the best and i guess this could be some of the reasons C. Ronaldo has struggle to beat Messi in goals scoring. Like the saying goes do unto others what you would wish them do unto you. Looking at Jordan he is not built in the stature of C. Ronaldo to depend on his own only abilities by being so selfish. Rather should be selfless, which is, to assist and be assisted by desisting from this atitude of unecessarily selfishness and all will be alright for his career and country. He should rather be careful with those who appears to be speaking for him, they are those who wish his downfall and prefer he swim in his naivetivity so that he fails.
