Paris wants to lose the ballast!
According to information from “L’Equipe”, the Qatar club PSG wants to thin out its squad. At the top of the table: the national team player Julian Draxler (28).
3 BUNDESLIGA CLUB SHOWS INTERESTS …
In private, Julian Draxler currently has every reason to be happy. In mid-April the former Schalke announced the happiness of his father. Girlfriend Stehanie Taing shows an ultrasound image of their baby on an Instagram post. So, while things are going great at home, Draxler isn’t that lucky on the pitch …
As reported by France-Medium “L’Equipe”, the German must reorient himself professionally. Background: PSG is currently preparing for the new season and wants to make room for new stars. Candidates for expulsion? Including the former Bundesliga star (Schalke and Wolfsburg).
Draxler still has a contract until 2024. However, the midfielder was unable to prevail under coach Mauricio Pochettino (50). Overall, he has made 24 competitive games this season, but has rarely gone beyond the wild card role. The Gladbeck native has repeatedly rejected back injuries.
Now the Parisian chapter for Draxler (20 million market value) could really end. In 2017 he moved from Wolfsburg to Senna for a salary of € 36m, and has since played 198 games for PSG (26 goals, 41 assists) – he hasn’t played for any club more often.
But a possible change even seems to meet mutual interest. As recently reported by “L’Equipe”, Draxler wanted to leave the club to train in the match. Background: the winter World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year. Draxler wants to convince national team manager Hansi Flick (57) of his qualities. Hertha, Dortmund and Leverkusen are said to be interested, as is Sevilla.
Also on the list is Thilo Kehrer (25). The central defender moved to Paris in 2018 for 37 million (125 games, four goals, two assists), he still has a contract until 2023. They should affect German and English clubs, writes “L’Equipe”. Price: from 20 to 30 million euros. Other candidates to leave are Leandro Paredes (27) and Layvin Kurzawa (29).
So Paris wants to create capacity for large transfers again. Background: Club executives crave the long-awaited ‘Champions League title’ goal. Julian Draxler probably won’t live to see him again …
