Liverpool's Baros agrees terms with Schalke 04 

BERLIN, July 30 (Reuters) - Schalke 04 have agreed personal terms with Liverpool's Czech striker Milan Baros, German sports news agency SID reported on Saturday. "We've agreed things with Baros and his agent," Schalke coach Ralf Rangnick told SID.

"He wants to come to us. We'll make a move towards (agreeing the transfer with) Liverpool at the start of next week."

Baros, 23, said earlier this month that he wanted to remain at Liverpool but manager Rafael Benitez has not played him in the first two qualifying rounds of the Champions League this season.

The European champions's asking price for the Czech Republic international has been a sticking point with the Bundesliga runners-up.

"We have time and don't need to acceed to Liverpool's demands straight away," Rangnick said.

SID said Baros, who is under contract at Liverpool until 2007, would cost Schalke nine million euros ($10.9 million).
