Rahman is recovering from a knee injury sustained in January 2017 during the AFCON tournament in Gabon and observers say that the extended loan move will help him regain fitness and offer him a chance to fight for a spot in the Chelsea team.
Schalke 04 had been chasing the player’s signature despite the fact that he was injured and they sounded happy with his comeback as they shared the news of the move.
