Juventus patient for Draxler

Reports suggest Juventus have not given up on Julian Draxler, but are in no rush to conclude a deal.

The Bianconeri have agreed terms with the German international, but their first offer - reported to be €15m plus bonuses - was rejected by his club, Schalke 04.

The Bundesliga side have declared that they will not enter into further negotiations, but Gianluca Di Marzio’s website believes the Juve are not giving up.

The Old Lady are reportedly prepared to wait until after the Supercoppa Italiana on August 8 in Shanghai, with the transfer market upon until the end of August.

Schalke are believed to be asking for €30m for the 21-year-old, twice Juventus’ original offer.

Despite this disparity, Di Marzio’s site is confident that the deal is not dead, with the Bianconeri happy to bide their time.
