Draxler 'will leave Wolfsburg'

Julian Draxler “will definitely leave Wolfsburg” next summer and Juventus are ready to revive their bid, reveals his intermediary.

The creative midfielder had been extremely close to Juve in the summer of 2015, but the Bianconeri pulled out and he moved from Schalke to Wolfsburg for €36m instead.

“Max Allegri had spoken to Draxler, they were in sync and there was an immediate rapport between them,” Fabio Parisi told Tuttosport.

Parisi is the intermediary who worked on that move with Juventus just over a year ago.

“Wolfsburg have strong owners, but unfortunately for the German fans, everyone wants to leave there. Over the summer Draxler was on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain, who had offered nearly €65m.

“He will definitely leave Wolfsburg at the end of the season. He would’ve gladly run to join Juve and is the ideal trequartista for Allegri.

“I repeat: Draxler will leave, but whether or not Juventus are interested again is another matter. I think the Bianconeri can still spend big money, as their revenue is close to that of the top European clubs.

“The very real profit made on Paul Pogba will have an effect on their balance sheets for the next few years, allowing Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici to make more investments.”

Arsenal are also known to be interested in the 23-year-old Germany international.
