According to reports in French publication L’Equipe, via Football365, Paris Saint-Germain are ready to sell attacker Julian Draxler, who is valued at £31.5m by Transfermarkt, despite only signing him during the January transfer window.
The 23-year-old moved to the Parc des Princes from Wolfsburg at the start of the year, and despite scoring an impressive 10 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions, L’Equipe, via Football365, says that PSG boss Unai Emery has told the forward that he is surplus to requirements following the arrival of Neymar from Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been busy strengthening his own squad, but he is yet to bring the wide player he is craving despite being heavily linked with a move for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic.
The Portuguese boss could be tempted to switch his attentions to the Germany international now though, and Red Devils supporters would back him on the move if their thoughts on social media are anything to go by.
While some say that they would pay anything to get him, others feel that he could be the final part in Mourinho’s jigsaw.

If Draxler is available he has to be snapped up! The guy has talent and is young and will continue to prosper. Sign him up #MUFC

To be crystal clear … I'd be ecstatic with signing Draxler or Lemar! #MUFC

Draxler at #mufc would be good. A goal scoring attacking midfielder. Exactly what we need. But don't think he's an improvement on players rn

If Draxler is available he's a better option than Perisic… Get it done Ed (Or just use Martial) #MUFC

Julian Draxler seems to be available. 6'2 so he's the 'Mourinho fit' and would be an outstanding signing. I'd pay whatever it takes. #mufc
