Wolfsburg's most expensive transfer- Wolves shatter record to sign Draxler from Schalke

Wolfsburg have made their most expensive ever signing after securing the transfer of Julian Draxler from Schalke. Draxler has moved for a fee of 35 million euros, making him the second most transfer within the Bundesliga after Mario Gotze's 37 million euro switch from Dortmund to Bayern Munich.

The deal was also Schalke's biggest sale, a fact confirmed by the club's director Horst Heldt.

Draxler is expected to be a replacement for Kevin de Bruyne, who moved to Manchester City for a staggering 74 million euros (54m GBP). Wolfsburg allegedly picked up a total of 100 million euros from the combined transfers of de Bruyne and Ivan Perisic, who joined Inter Milan.
