Julian Draxler dreams of playing for Manchester United

Schalke starlet and German International has told press that he ‘dreams’ of playing for Manchester .

Despite the 19 year old signing a new deal earlier this year, it appears that he may be leaving Schalke with Borussia looking to take him from their rivals.

But from Draxler’s comments to Sport 1 if he does leave the Veltins-Arena it could be to go abroad, rather than move to another club in the Bundesliga:

“Which boy doesn’t dream about playing for Real, Barca, or ? That’s nothing to be ashamed of.”

With Draxler’s comments, his representative Roger Wittmann insists that any move will be dependent on a club activating his £38m release clause:

“The player costs 45.5 million, and he has to agree. These are the conditions of the transfer.”

With Moyes actively looking for players to bring in, Draxler isn’t a name that has been linked to the club previously. He is also a player we wouldn’t necessarily need, a luxury, so I don’t expect anything to come from his comments.
