German wonderkid, 19, revealed he would relish a move to either of the Premier clubs.
The FC Schalke starlet put Manchester United and Chelsea on red alert after he admitted he dreams of a move to either of the clubs. One of the hottest prospects in German football, Julian Draxler broke into the Schalke side in January aged just 17.
The German international quickly established himself as a regular first team player and has thus attracted interest from the biggest clubs in Europe, with many of them believed to be tracking his situation at the German club.
Draxler achieved 10 goals and 4 assists in last seasons Bundesliga campaign, along with impressive performances in the Champions league, proving he can perform at the highest level. Consistent impressive performances enhanced his reputation across Europe and it hasn't come as a surprise that he has attracted attention from Premier League giants United and Chelsea, with both clubs recently acquiring new managers.
“Which boy doesn't dream about playing for Real, Barca, Chelsea or Manchester United?” Draxler said in a recent interview. However, the young play makers hefty price tag of £38M may put potential suitors off, with his agent insisting he won't be sold for less than this substantial sum.
Reports suggest Jose Mourinho is considering a bid, but it is unlikely he will match the Schalke valuation.
