Draxler Staying Put

Sometime ago, but not in the too distant past, Chelsea were, if you recall, linked with a promising young German midfielder.

Julian Draxler, a 19 year-old who has started to carve out a reputation in his homeland, has, apparently, ended any desires Chelsea may hold with regards to signing him by decreeing that he will be staying with Schalke 04, with the young German quoted as having remarked,

"It was a matter of the heart and gut feelings."

But, with Marco van Ginkel and Andre Schurrle now on board, I`d suggest any interest we may once have held was already history!

Yes too overloaded in the CM and AM positions. Not needed.

A good player on his day, would have loved to have him, but that would be greedy of me to continue craving for AMs/wingers with the players we have in our ranks already.

He could possibly join us if Juan mata actually leaves..Goal.com says we made an approach and were knocked back...though I don't believe it but if Juan leaves this summer I wouldn't be shocked if we get Draxler in as his replacement ................ m.goal.com/x/en-gb/news/4106218

Why the hell are people thinking mou won't use mata,yes it was reported but you should take it as bullock rumour unless Mou wants to use Oscar ahead of mata,but for tracking back nonsense if my memory serves me right Mata have a better work rate than Ozil,he presses better than both Ozil and Schneider when of the ball,I don't know why Mou won't Use him,we can't have only one number 10 in Oscar and people should quit Hazard as no.10 coz Hazard is not in my book,he is more of wide player,that his flair suits no 10 doesn't mean he is one

We have an overflow of AM at our club already.Dont need him and I am sure whichever club he goes to in future will have a huge asset on their hands.
