Julian Draxler, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder revealed that he was counting a summer move amid links with Premier League outfit Leeds United.

“It didn’t go well at all last season,” Draxler told Bild

“Then the season canceled due to coronavirus, not at a sports level and also because of my injuries. For me, it was certainly a season to forget.”

Germany International endured that he pondered a move away but eventually did not see a circumstance that matched it.

“I was dreaming about going to do something else in the summer,” Draxler said. 

“It was eventually difficult to find a club because of the coronavirus situation where I would have said: ‘All fits well together, I really want to [come here].’”

“That wasn’t the case, so I thought I will not dare take a fast shot and try to look for my place in Paris.”

When asked if he was able to take a smaller pay to make a move possible, Draxler said: “Definitely. The top priority is not to sign a deal at the same wage. It really needs to be right with the overall package.”

“It will be a great sense of improvement at this stage, one year before the European Championship, I can imagine playing at the club, that good football is played there and that I play an important part.”

“Once I’m free and another club doesn’t have to discuss a move with Paris, things will look better next year.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
