Wolfsburg Keeping Wantaway Julian Draxler – Wolfsburg’s Julian Draxler has repeatedly spoken of his desire to leave, but the club insist he will be staying.
Draxler, who shone at the 2016 UEFA European Championship, caught the eye of a number of big clubs including Arsenal, but Wolfsburg are intent on keeping hold of their young star.
Draxler claims that manager Dieter Hecking had told him that he’d be transferred if a bigger club came for him, but the club maintains that there was no such agreement.
“Wolfsburg wish to make it absolutely clear that at no time did those responsible at the club make either written nor oral commitments on the transfer of Julian Draxler within the current transfer period,” a statement by the club reads.
“This is reiterated by a contractual release clause agreed upon with Julian Draxler and his management, which does not come into effect until summer 2017.
“VfL Wolfsburg will not be selling Julian Draxler during the course of the current transfer period.
“In joint discussions with Julian Draxler, VfL Wolfsburg again made it clear that they would not be granting the player’s wish to make a move.
“We now consider any possible uncertainties to have been eradicated and that all parties can revert back to a professional and responsible collaboration for the good of VfL Wolfsburg and, in particular, for our fans.”
