According to the latest report from Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ), Bayern Munich's Sebastian Rudy is about to wear some blue instead of red as the German media claims that the Bundesliga Champions and FC Schalke 04 have reached an agreement on the midfielder's transfer arrangements. The current agreement is a basic, verbal one as no official papers have been signed yet. After the league opener against Hoffenheim, Rudy confirmed that he is willing to leave Bayern anytime soon.

WAZ reported that the transfer fee for Rudy would be €16 million while Sky News reporter Dirk Schlarmann indicated that the amount would be more than €15 million but confirmed that it won't reach €20 million.

It is said that Schalke is eyeing Rudy as a replacement for their Algerian midfielder Nabil Bentaleb, who is allegedly linked with Olympique Marseille. If Domenico Tedesco's side snatches Rudy from Munich, they'll have two potential regulars -- the other one being Omar Mascarell of Eintracht Frankfurt (Kicker).
