Julian Draxler: 'I'm not thinking about leaving Paris Saint-Germain'

Neymar arrived for a staggering €222m this summer and has been a hit so far this season, scoring 11 goals and providing nine assists in all competitions. "I'm in the middle of the season with the club and I'm concentrating on the high goals that we have".

Speaking in a news conference ahead of Germany's friendly against France in Cologne on Tuesday, Draxler stated that "the tension surrounding Neymar has been created by everything that has been said from the outside".

Indeed, we must always take players at their word.

A return to his homeland has been mooted, with Bayern reported to hold an interest, but Draxler is happy with his lot.

Both teams are filled with exciting young talent with the likes of Draxler, Leroy Sane and Timo Werner providing a delicious attack for the Germans.

Although the 34-year old is still a key player when fit, there's little excuse for a club the size of Bayern to still be so reliant upon him.

The German international is desperate to feature in his country's 2018 FIFA World Cup squad.

Midfielder Julian Draxler says that he is not thinking about leaving Paris Saint-Germain, despite falling down the pecking order at the Parc des Princes. Bringing in Draxler would mean two, younger options who can play on either wing just as easily.

"Of course there was that penalty situation with Cavani, but that was sorted out one or two days later - but was written about for four or five weeks". Joshua Kimmich is in place, alongside David Alaba, Niklas Sule, Thiago Alcantara and Coman too.
