Julian Draxler: Feels he would have fitted well into the Dortmund team

Dortmund made an approach for the 19-year-old this summer but, despite branding their move an indecent proposal given the rivalry between the two clubs, the Gelsenkirchen native has now said Dortmund would have been an ideal club for him.

"In sporting terms, I would definitely have fit into the Dortmund team," he said in an interview with Sport1.

"And I don't find it all that damnable that Dortmund enquired about me. It's not like we did things any differently by signing Felipe Santana from Dortmund."

Draxler, who has attracted interest from numerous clubs around Europe despite committing himself to a new deal until 2018 with the Royal Blues in May, has ruled out a move away from Gelsenkirchen this summer.

However, he has said in various interviews that he will reconsider his options next summer and that a move to England or Spain would be of interest.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
