Video: Julian Draxler Spent His Last PSG Paycheck on Buying His Pals Club Merchandise

Julian Draxler has revealed he spent his last PSG paycheck on buying club merchandise for his friends.

The Germany international moved to the French capital in January, having been prised away from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

It’s understood the 23-year-old turned down a move to Liverpool after the Premier League giants refused to match his £170,000-a-week wage demands, making it likely he earns somewhere near that figure for PSG.

And while most guys his age would be tempted to splash that money on themselves, Draxler spent his last wage on buying PSG gear for his friends.

The ex-Schalke ace took part in a Q&A session with kids from the club’s academy this week and Draxler opened up on his spending when one plucky youngster asked the question:


Draxler has made 13 appearances for Unai Emery’s side since the turn of the year, scoring three goals.

However, despite his progress, Draxler’s team look set to miss out on their fifth successive title with Monaco currently top of Ligue 1.
