Raul agrees two-year contract with Schalke

Raul has agreed a two-year deal to sign for German side Schalke 04, after leaving Real Madrid, the club have confirmed.

• Raul targets silverware

It has long been known that Raul would leave Real Madrid after an 18-year association with the Spanish side and Schalke were tipped as favourites after he was linked with a move to England.

However, Schalke have landed the veteran striker and coach Felix Magath said he would thrive at the club.

''It's great news for FC Schalke 04, I am pleased that we have succeeded in such an exceptional footballer and world-class striker switching to the Bundesliga for Schalke 04,'' Magath told the club website. ''He will be an inspiration. His qualities will help us.

''His commitment is a crucial step in our efforts to strengthen the squad for future tasks, and to restructure. I look forward to working with this good professional.''

Raul scored 323 goals in 741 games for Real Madrid, as well as 44 in 102 appearances for Spain.
