With the transfer deadline fast approaching for European clubs, the few deals that are being made appear to be processing quickly.
Dario Rodriguez arrived in Schalke last week and Varela may well have been secured to help the former bed in, in Germany.
A third South American Anibal Matellan is also at Schalke, who will now field two former Nacional players.
The Casal Group have remained silent about the terms of the transfer, or for how many years the contract is for, although what is certain is that the Uruguayan international said his goodbyes to his team-mates and is now travelling to Europe.
Chievo Verona and Tenerife were other teams that had been interested in the 24-year-old, but Schalke have stolen in for him.
