Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler says he rejected a move to the Premier League this summer in order to remain with the Bundesliga club. The 20 year old is set to face Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday.

"There were offers from England, but I stayed because I was certain to play in World Cup year," he told BBC Sport.

"However, you never know what will happen in the future."

When asked which Premier League club he would like to join, Draxler said: "I have my favourite team, but I am at Schalke and I don't want to talk about other clubs.

"If I state its Arsenal or Manchester United then maybe I'll be reading it in the newspapers tomorrow."
