German paper Bild report that Nabil Bentaleb to Schalke is a done deal, that he is a Schalke player.

Algerian Bentaleb, according to separate pieces of inside information  of various Spurs forums, confirms that while Pochettino and Bentaleb didn't fall out, it was because of Bentaleb's attitude that he is leaving.

He upset everyone over his wage negotiations, which too an eternity because he was demanding a high wage. That tell you all you need to know about his opinion of his own worth. With injury and the emergence of Dier, plus the improvement in Dembele, Bentaleb couldn't get game time.
