Man United make £30m bid for Bundesliga & Germany attacker

Posted by

Julian Draxler may be only one year into his deal with VfL Wolfsburg, but if Manchester United’s bid gets accepted, it may be his last.

According to Goal via the Daily Star, Man United have made a £30 million bid for the Wolfsburg and Germany attacking midfielder.

Per the source, Draxler is seen as an alternate option for Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho in the event that an impending move for Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan falls apart. Mourinho is reportedly interested in the 22-year-old Draxler but Wolfsburg are hesitant to let him go.

Draxler scored six goals in 23 Bundesliga matches for Wolfsburg after making a switch from Schalke 04 late last summer. The scoring tally was the second-highest of his career after a 2012-13 performance for Schalke.

On the international level, Draxler has been capped 22 times and has scored two goals – with his most recent goal coming this past Sunday in a 3-0 win over Slovakia in the Euro 2016 knockout round.
