Schalke general manager Horst Heldt insists that the club have no plans to sell Julian Draxler this summer, despite reports linking the 19-year-old with a move.

Schalke are keen on keeping highly-rated youngster Julian Draxler at the club, despite talk of a summer move.

The 19-year-old has been in fine form for the Gelsenkirchen side this season, which has led to reports linking him with a move to one of Europe's top sides.

However, Schalke general manager, Horst Heldt, has insisted that the club have "no intention" of selling Draxler, with only a huge offer from the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona likely to tempt the German outfit to do a deal.

"There is no exit clause and we have no intention of selling Julian at the end of this season. He is feeling very well at the club and is the face of Schalke," Bild quotes Heldt as saying.

"What I would say if a €100m offer came in tomorrow? You can't blame Julian for having the desire to play at one of his dream clubs in Spain at some point.

"If Barcelona or Madrid were to offer €100m, we would look at things differently."

Draxler has made 34 appearances for Schalke so far this season, scoring 11 goals.
