Bayern Munich have ruled out a summer move for Schalke’s Julian Draxler, leaving Arsenal favourites to get a big deal done.
It is no secret that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking to bring the young man to England with some reports even claiming that an agreement was already in place.
However, Munich are were also keen to activate his £37 million clause and snap him up, despite the Gunners keen interest.
But the Champions League holders have now ruled out a potential swoop, with chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisting the 20-year-old isn’t in the club’s plans.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror, He told Die Welt am Sonntag: “We are not buying any player from Dortmund or Schalke just to hurt these clubs.
“We are just buying players who can give FC Bayern more quality straight away. I can rule out that we will sign Julian Draxler in the summer.”
