Julian Draxler is not the first, and certainly not the last, footballer whose talent was destroyed in Paris Saint-Germain. Less than six years ago, he arrived at the Princes' Park, where, regardless of the hundreds of trophies at home, he gambled on the best football years.
He came at 23, now he is 29 years old, but he appeared on the radar of a club that could revive his career. According to the local Andalusian Estadio Deportivo, and transmitted by the German Bild, Sevilla is interested in the left-winger.
The club from Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán wants to take advantage of the fact that Draxler is not standard for even the fifth, six seasons in the city of light. The story has an additional foundation because the sports director of the Andalusians, the famous Monchi, extremely appreciates him and they wanted to sign him while he was still playing for Wolfsburg.
At that time, the price was out of the reach of the Spanish club, but as the German is currently on the list of redundant players, Sevilla could get him below 20,000,000 euros, which is currently estimated by the specialized Transfermarkt.
German coach Hansi Flick recently pointed out that he will only need players who regularly play football in their clubs for the upcoming World Cup, and the player himself is aware that he will not get enough minutes in the ranks of Paris.
"I need more games before the World Cup. We will see what happens in the summer. I have to play more than this season," the German footballer said four days ago after playing in a friendly match against Israel (Panzer 2-0) all 90 minutes.
Draxler's talent is unquestionable, it was seen at the beginning of the last decade in the first seasons of senior football in the Schalke jersey. He made his debut for Germany a little less than ten years ago, recorded 58 appearances and seven goals, and can boast that in 2014 he became the world champion with the Panzers.
But the choice of the club two years later was not good. Only a year after his arrival in Paris, Neymar arrived in the capital of France and is today the most expensive paid football player of all time (222,000,000 euros).
Draxler collaborated with Unai Emery and Thomas Tuchel in Paris Saint-Germain before Mauricio Pochettino became his coach, but he did not really manage to impose himself on any of them. He was the most consistent in the 2018/19 competition, when he played 31 championship matches (eight from the bench), scoring three and assisting for eight goals.
The modest performance for the season, which is 36,000,000 paid to the German, can be characterized as the best in Paris Saint-Germain. He played a total of 198 games for the French giant with 26 goals and 41 assists.
