He also started during the last two days of Ligue 1, against Lens and Rennes.
Julian Draxler, who likes Paris, has been approached by English and Italian clubs, but also by Bayern, who could have offered him a better salary. Recall that Juan Bernat, Angel Di Maria, Keylor Navas and Neymar have already extended their contract with PSG. Julian Draxler is going to be next.
