Manchester United turn their attentions to German wonder kid

Manchester United’s attempts to lure a marquee signing to Old Trafford this summer seem to have all-but faded, and with just a few days left until the transfer window slams shut, Louis van Gaal may have to try a different approach to appease the fans.

According to the Daily Express, Manchester United have turned their attentions to Schalke 04’s biggest talent – Julian Draxler. The 21-year old is one of the hottest talents in world football, hence why the likes of Juventus and Arsenal are also trying to lure him away from the Bundesliga.

Draxler already has 15 Germany caps to his name which is mightily impressive for a man of his age, and another huge selling point is that he is extremely versatile. His preference would be to play in the centre, but he can also do a job on either wing. He’s also superb with the ball at either feet.

Manchester United will have to act fast though, as Juventus reportedly made their move for the German yesterday.

  • I really like the look of Draxler – sure doesn’t he fit the bill. Young, exciting, boundless potential and versatile. We need this signing more than we need Robben. If we get Draxler and Stones, I will be over the moon but we need a striker too.
