It has been reported that injury to Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler won’t put off Manchester United and Arsenal.
It is said that 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.
He is now likely to be out until the New Year with a hamstring problem but that won’t stop the Gunners – long-term admirers of the promising talent – and United maintaining their interest.
Arsenal attempted to bring Draxler to the Emirates in the summer but wouldn’t meet Schalke’s asking price which was in the region of £35million.
Now they have Manchester United as rivals for his services.
