Manchester United have to agree signing of £22million playmaker

Julian Draxler

Last summer, we allowed Lukaku and Sanchez to leave Manchester United and so far, Solskjaer has not been able to replace the duo.

Man United did sign a winger in the form of James but the Welsh starlet has not netted a single league goal since August 2019. On the other hand, Ighalo was secured in the winter but the Nigerian striker is just a back-up option.

Therefore, the Red Devils definitely need to improve things in the attacking third and have been heavily linked with Jadon Sancho.

As per Sport Bild, Dortmund want a mammoth fee of 130 million euros for the England international. So, United would have to break their transfer record to sign him and that is not feasible during the current crisis.

As far as an alternative is concerned, several players are linked but in my view, Man Utd have to agree the signing of Julian Draxler. I’m not sure why top clubs are not linked with the proven quality German international who is available for cheap.

According to Sport Bild, the 26-year-old playmaker could leave Paris-Saint Germain in the summer transfer window. His current contract with the French champions will expire next year and his market value has dropped down to just 24 million euros (£22million).

Draxler was part of Joachim Low’s squad that won the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Moreover, he was the captain of the German side that lifted the Confederations Cup trophy back in 2017. However, now he finds himself in a complex situation in France.

The Kaiser proved his worth in the Bundesliga but now, he is just a bench warmer at Paris-Saint Germain. In 2018-19, he started 22 league games, scored 3 goals and provided 8 assists for the German giants.

However, in the 2019-20 campaign, the 51-capped international only managed to start 7 times in the Ligue 1 under Thomas Tuchel.

In Germany, he excelled in the attack while playing out wide or through the center but PSG have mainly utilized him in the central midfield. So, the playmaker has got the quality, experience and the versatility to improve our squad and in all honesty, the valuation of £22million is a massive bargain in today’s market.

In your opinion, should Solskjaer move to sign Julian Draxler from PSG?

  1. This would be a massive bargain considering the quality and experience this guy has got. I absolutely agree. He miles ahead of Dan James and the likes of Boga and more gifted than Grealish.

  2. No, Draxler isn’t good enough, he’s a PSG bench warmer, unproven in the EPL. I wouldn’t buy him, plus he’d command ridiculous wages. Big flat no!

  3. In my opinion Draxler is not a good midfielder creator like Eden hazard and Manchester United need some one like hazard or Carzola Former arsenal player.
