Manchester United are reportedly plotting a deadline day move for Schalke star Julian Draxler.

The 13-time Premier League champions have been left frustrated in their pursuit of FC Barcelona forward Pedro this summer, who eventually signed for Chelsea, meaning the Red Devils have now switched their attentions towards signing the Germany international.

The 21-year-old, who already has 15 international caps, scored two goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga outfit last season.

However; it is also understood that Serie A champions and last year’s UEFA Champions League runners-up Juventus are also interested in the German ace.

Draxler, who has been constantly linked with Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea in the past, would become United’s marquee signing alongside fellow arrival Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven this summer.
