But Schumacher is a free agent after being replaced by Nico Hulkenberg.

Meanwhile, Mercedes are looking out for a new reverse after Nyck de Vries joined AlphaTauri and Stoffel Vandoorne signed for Aston Martin.

And Wolff admitted that he would be interested in taking care of the German when speaking at the Abu Dhabi GP.

He said: “Mick is someone that has always been close to our heart because of Michael, or the whole Schumacher family.

“Ralf was in a DTM for a long time for us, his son races Mercedes [cars] in GTs.

“He’s an intelligent, well-mannered young man, [and] he’s been very successful in junior formulas.

“We believe that we can look after him if the situation were to happen and with someone that fits the team, but we haven’t really put pen to paper, we haven’t really come anywhere close to any terms.

“I’m saying that openly because I think he just fits and now we need to make it happen, if he wants to, Sabine [Kehm, Schumacher’s manager] wants to, and then we see where that goes to.”

But Wolff admitted that nothing has been decided yet.

He added: “We haven’t really put pen to paper, we haven’t really come anywhere close to any terms.

“I’m seeing it that openly because I think he just fits and now we need to make it happen, if he wants to, Sabine wants to and then we see we see where that goes to.”
