    Pending a miracle, Meshino's Rio Ave has been relegated.

    He is only there on-loan.

    Sure but it's never easy changing team every single season...

    Still doesn’t change the fact Meshino is there on-loan. He’s been benched for large parts of the season.

    Yes. Staying at Rio Ave will not guarantee him playing time. Better to move, even if Rio Ave are safe from relegation.

    I think it’s a pretty good move for him. Though Schalke are somehow a second division club at the moment, they’re probably the third most popular club in Germany after Bayern and Dortmund and have way more resources than their 2.Bundesliga competition. So a great chance to be part of winning side, probably a significant wage increase for him, and first division football next year if the team lives up to expectations.

    I agree. This might work out like Endo at Stuttgart.
    Although we're talking about Schalke, so... everything could happen.

    Schalke's record since Itakura became a starter

    7P 6W 0D 1L / 5 clean sheets

    He is too good to play in the second division. Schalke are already considering making the loan deal permanent.

    Surprised no one has mentioned it yet but scored his first goal for the club in a 4-1 win against Nuremberg 2 days ago

    I hope Schalke would promote to Bundesliga 1, otherwise, he should look for another team next season.

    Schalke fans have clearly drunk too much beer, but it's nice to see him thriving so much.

    Another goal, this time a last gasp one equalizing at HSV at the end of a scrappy high speed match.
