Manchester United blown out of Julian Draxler chase


The Red Devils are chasing the German wonder kid Julian Draxler ever since his Schalke days but were unable to complete a deal neither with his club nor with the player due to their recent struggles in both domestic and European competitions. The Manchester United we all knew of late is GONE ! Now, they are nothing but another English Premier League team with a big load of money. The fear factor the Red Devils once had is now just a mere memory for the United fans and the players have started to doubt their future if they switch to the Old Trafford. This is something United have not experienced under the great Sir Alex Ferguson.

Also, the recent failed ‘big’ money transfer have made an unpleasant name for Manchester United among the trending players. Julian Draxler is one of the most wanted young talents at present who is also linked with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool in the past. Manchester United have eclipsed their rivals to sign Draxler as they have made a €60m bid for the former Schalke star, according to reports. But all of a sudden, all the rumours vanished as Wolfburg’s sporting director Klaus Allofs ruled out any potential departure for both Julian Draxler and Andre Schurrle.

“We always say that we listen to everything. That expressively does not apply for Andre and Julian. We don’t want to sell them, we want to return to the Champions League with them,” Allofs said.

Initially, it is reported that Manchester United are ready to activate the release clause in Julian Draxler’s contract which is around €60m, but Allofs deemed all that news as ‘false’ and confirmed that there is no such clauses were included in the players’ contract. Apart from Julian Draxler and Andre Schurrle, Ricardo Rodriguez is another Wolfsburg player who is heavily linked with a move away from Germany. Allofs revealed that Rodriguez has a release clause in his contract and may leave the club in the summer transfer market.

With Julian Draxler deal looking unpromising, Manchester United are expected to choose their other targets but there are still reports linking Draxler with Manchester United and Allofs comments mean that Wolfsburg has something to bother about the player. Whether he signs for United or not, we can be sure of one thing that we are going to see ‘transfer drama’ with Julian Draxler.
