Julian Draxler trolls PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe in French dressing room

Julian Draxler trolls PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe in French dressing room

"I am not contemplating about leaving the club in winter or summer" he said, "I am in mid-season with PSG now and I am focused on the high goals we have".

Nevertheless, the former Schalke and Wolfsburg star has been one of those forced to change since Neymar's arrival, and Draxler's most recent run of action has come in more central areas instead. In light of speculation linking him with a move to Bayern Munich, the player muttered the well-worn, cliche lines of the modern footballer. Yet that's not to say Draxler couldn't find himself in the Bavarian red of Bayern this time next year.

However, Draxler, 24, rubbished the exit talk before training ahead of Germany's friendly with France in Cologne on Tuesday.

Draxler, who cost PSG £40m, was touted around Europe in the summer and Arsenal were linked with a move on deadline day for the Germany international, as they prepared to cash in on Alexis Sanchez.

Primarily used as a left winger for much of his career, Draxler would not only add unquestionable quality to Bayern's front line but he would also offer a genuine, long-term replacement to Franck Ribery. He captained them to victory in last summer's Confederations Cup alongside Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.

But we wonder if it's the sort of thing he could have done to Neymar?

Draxler, who will likely line up against a number of other PSG representatives, calmly walked in to the the French dressing room at the stadium will Mbappe was receiving a massage just to troll the young striker. Joshua Kimmich is in place, alongside David Alaba, Niklas Sule, Thiago Alcantara and Coman too.
