Schalke ace Julian Draxler cannot rule out leaving his German club in the summer.
Asked by derwesten.de about his future, Draxler said: "I'd prefer not to comment on all those rumours.
"Look at what happened with Manuel Neuer. He was 100 per cent convinced that he would never join FC Bayern but, after having played as a pro for five years, time made him change his opinion.
"I also can't say what I will think in five or six or maybe even 10 years.
"And when you rule something out entirely and you end up playing where most people don't want you to be, the outcry is huge.
"It's no secret that I have a get-out clause in the contract and so from year to year, the possibility exists, at least to think about what is best for my development."
