Julian Draxler would consider move to FC Bayern


Julian Draxler, the 18-year old German talent playing for Schalke 04, would not rule out playing for Bayern Munich, if the situation arose.

This comment comes in response (a year and a half later) to a Fan-Talk in April of 2011, where it was reported that he would never consider switching to the record German champions.

He states that he was misunderstood.

There is a song called "Bayern" by a German punk rock band named "Die Toten Hosen" (who are from Duesseldorf in the Ruhrgebiet), which goes on about never, ever switching to FC Bayern. It's been an anthem for decades for all Bayern haters. Draxler claims that he just admitted to listening to it a lot, not that he actually agreed with the sentiments of the song.

He notes that you should never say never, and anything can happen in football, and that he wouldn't be averse to playing for FC Bayern, if they came calling.

This is probably not an imminent move anyway, since Draxler has a contract through 2016 with Schalke, and, as far as I know, Bayern haven't made any inquiries yet, but it's nice to know that one of the top talents in Germany, and newly minted national team player, is open to playing for the best club in the world (slight personal bias may be in play here).
