The announcement is not yet official as it was the case on Saturday with Neymar, or in recent weeks with Angel Di Maria or Keylor Navas, but Julian Draxler, the German midfielder, will also extend his stay in Paris.
Unlike the Brazilian who was still under contract until 2022, which is also the case for Kylian Mbappé, Draxler was at the end of his contract at the end of June.
As revealed on the L'Equipe website this Sunday evening, a few minutes from the match in Rennes where he is the holder, Draxler will commit to three years.
During a meeting between the parties two weeks ago, PSG had set as a non-negotiable condition a decrease in the player's salary. Draxler and his entourage weren't too keen at first, but they finally agreed. Likewise, after wishing for a two-year extension, they ended up accepting the three years proposed by PSG. Last summer, Leeds had positioned themselves to reclaim the German from episodic appearances under the Tuchel era. Seville also in recent months. Bayern Munich had also taken information without making an offer.
Draxler arrived in January 2017 in the PSG of Unai Emery against 36 million euros paid to Wolfsburg. Despite a good start, he will never become essential, barred from the following summer by the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé. Under Thomas Tuchel, he will also play the utilities. But the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino has changed the situation. He has evolved in particular this season in the Champions League in Barcelona and during the two meetings of the quarter-final of the Champions League against Bayern Munich.
