Schalke called their former forward Raul Gonzalez to help them with advice on the club could recover from the ongoing crisis.
There are some at the Bundesliga club who see the current Real Madrid Castilla coach as the perfect person to come in and turn things around, although no official offer has been made, say Marca.
Between 2010 and 2012 Raul played for Schalke and left his mark after departing Los Blancos.
He became a hero in Gelsenkirchen, having led the team to a DFB-Pokal and a DFL-Supercup, before joining Al Sadd in Qatar.
To come out of the ongoing crisis Schalke has also contacted other former players.
Meanwhile, they see Raul as a candidate at Real Madrid as the future head coach of the first team, though they are aware that he should gain more coaching experience before making the leap to the bench at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
