Schalke 04 winger Julian Draxler has insisted that he would have been a good signing for Borussia Dortmund had his side allowed him to speak to them.
The teenager's club were reportedly unhappy with Dortmund's approach considering the rivalry that exists between the two, but Draxler said that did not stop Felipe Santana's switch earlier in the summer.
"In sporting terms, I would definitely have fit into the Dortmund team," he told Sport1.
"I don't find it all that bad that Dortmund enquired about me. It's not like we did things any differently by signing Santana from Dortmund."
Draxler signed a new contract extension in May and is set to stay at Schalke until 2018.
