Transfer Balls: Arsenal Sell Julian Draxler To Manchester United

by | 2nd, November 2014

TRANSFER Balls: The Daily Express has an “EXCLUSIVE”. News is that “Arsenal face fresh battle from Man Utd for Schalke star Julian Draxler”. What with his being an Express exclusive, it is most likely utter balls.

John Richardson writes:

MANCHESTER UNITED have joined Arsenal in the pursuit of emerging German midfielder Julian Draxler.

Richardson adds:

But both clubs were left stunned on Friday night when the 21-year-old limped off after just 15 seconds in Schalke’s 1-0 victory over Augsburg in the Bundesliga.

Arsenal and Manchester were “stunned” by an injury to an injury-prone player who doesn’t play for them.

And let’s not forget other Daily Express Draxler scoops:

In October, the Mirror had other news:

Arsenal step up Julian Draxler interest sending scouts to monitor Schalke playmaker – The German World Cup winner has been on Wenger’s radar for a number of years and the Gunners could soon be set to test Schalke’s resolve

The Metro told its readers that Draxler “missed out on a place in this summer’s successful World Cup squad”.

Today the Metro says “Manchester United are closing in on a double deal for Schalke 04 pair Julian Draxlerand Benedikt Howedes.”

The Daily Star says United are “set to win the race for Draxler”.

And the Express told readers: “Schalke slap £60m price tag on Chelsea target Julian Draxler.”

Such are the facts.
