"It is not yet decided where the road leads for Draxler. He identifies himself with Schalke, which right now is his sporting home. He is an outstanding talent with strong prospects for a bright future. But his development is far from complete.
"For such a young man the step up to a top club in Europe is difficult. Becoming a starter directly is a big challenge," said Netzer.
"With Draxler, I feel that the time is not ripe for a change. I would recommend that he matures in Schalke for a while and continue to perform in the national team."
