GOAL VIDEO: Is Manchester United and Arsenal target Draxler worth a £60m bid?

In yesterday’s 0-1 win over Basel Schalke’s Julian Draxler scored a stunning goal. Is he worth a £60 million bid now?

Julian Draxler is heavily linked with some of the top clubs in Premier League, notably Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.

However after reported offers two month ago FC Schalke’s general manager Horst Heldt quashed hopes to pick Julian Draxler up by saying: “We are planning with Julian, but if there is an offer with over £60 million coming, what do I say then? We are planning with him, everything else in this crazy football world I can not control.“

Considering Draxler’s market value of £26.5 million a £60 million might be reaching. But from Schalke’s point of view £60 million is not exaggerated because Julian Draxler is that important for the team. Heldt’s humorous intended words could come true at some point if Draxler continues to play like he is playing.

How Manchester City can defeat champions Bayern Munich

In last Saturday’s Bundesliga match the team from the Ruhr valley in the West of Germany lost grip of a safe 1-3 lead with a injured Julian Draxler on the bench and almost lost the 3-3 draw in the end.

Last night in Champions League’s FC Basel vs. FC Schalke Julian Draxler showed his talent on the field and proved why he is so essential to his team. He initiated a strong attack which led to a rattling shot against the bar. 60 seconds later he went one better.

After a corner the ball was deflected and fell right in front of Draxler who made a stunning shot with a volley from the edge of the area.

With this 0-1 win FC Schalke leads in their Champions League table ahead of Chelsea and Basel.

Draxler showed again why he is worth the money. Is he worth a £60 million? See for yourself.
