Bundesliga club VFL Wolfsburg have confirmed on the transfer of promising winger Julian Draxler to French side Paris Saint-Germain, pending a medical, according to a release on the club website.
The 23-year-old has agreed a four-year deal with the Ligue 1 titleholders and UEFA Champions League participants. Both clubs have agreed to keep the financial details of the deal confidential.
“We’ve had some very intense but constructive discussions with Paris Saint-Germain, Julian Draxler and his management over the past few days and we’re confident to have reached a satisfactory conclusion for all parties,” said Olaf Rebbe, Sporting Director.
Head coach Valérien Ismaël commented: “Of course I’m sad to see Julian go, because he’s an outstanding footballer. He gave everything in the recent matches against Frankfurt and Gladbach and once again showed how much this club meant to him. I hope his move to France provides him with a fresh challenge.”
Julian Draxler joined VfL Wolfsburg from FC Schalke 04 in late August 2015. He played 34 Bundesliga matches, scoring five goals. He also made nine Champions League appearances (three goals) and two in the DFB Cup. Overall, Draxler scored 23 goals in 153 Bundesliga appearances and has 27 caps for Germany (three goals).
