Schalke youngster prefers Spain move over Italy

Schalke starlet Julian Draxler has stated he would prefer to play in Spain over Italy if he were to leave the Bundesliga in the future.

The 19-year-old has been linked with moves to Juventus and Inter in recent months, but has admitted he would prefer a move to La Liga over the Serie A.

“It is exciting to think about a move to another country and learning a new language,” Draxler told the the Frankfurter Allgemeine.

“Italy? It is an interesting country, but I prefer Spain. I really enjoy the football that is played in La Liga.”

The youngster has already made three appearances for the German national team, while recently becoming Schalke’s youngest player to make 100 appearances for the club.

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed. Feel free to add me on Twitter to talk about Inter, Italy or calcio in general @Boin44
