Julian Draxler has become a luxury player on the Paris Saint-Germain squad.
The 26-year-old doesn’t have a spot among the forwards or the midfield. It’s one reason why the German National Team manager, Joachim Löw, has encouraged Draxler to leave Paris in search for more minutes.
When approached by Sport 1 over his future with Les Parisiens, Draxler stated, “I will now concentrate fully on the DFB. Then we will see how things go in the club.”
Furthermore, the German media adds that PSG is probing the market, hoping to find a suitor for Draxler. The Ligue 1 champions would like to recoup a fee for him rather than losing him on a free when his contract expires next year.
It seems that it would benefit both parties to part ways, but there’s not much of a market for the Germany international. Hertha BSC is the only club reportedly to have shown interest in Draxler, but that’s when Jürgen Klinsmann was Hertha’s manager.
With one month left in the summer window and perhaps a move is still in the cards. Bayer 04 Leverkusen did receive money for Kai Havertz and could bring Draxler back to Germany considering his transfer value is around €22 million per Transfermarkt, but it’s only a speculation.
The UEFA Euro 2020 is next summer, and Draxler wants to be apart of the German National Team, so it will be interesting to see how his situation develops.
