Schalke 04 is a team that is known for trying hard to keep its best talents, but young midfielder Julian Draxler may very well be on his way out. He may want to stay here by signing a long-term deal. However, the fact of the matter is this: the team could always use more money so why not sell him for over $50 million?

The kid is attracting interest mainly from England — Arsenal to be exact. That team is already stacked in all of their midfield positions, but if they were to add him, they would have a 20-year-old kid who would blossom even further under the guidance of coach Arsene Wenger. Therefore, this is a move that could happen. If Draxler were to leave for big money, the team could sign another player to fill in his shoes.

One guy that has stayed loyal for quite some time now is none other than Peruvian international Jefferson Farfan. The right winger can run up and down the flank for days and has a keen eye when it comes to scoring goals and setting up teammates. He truly is a game-changer who can instantly make something happen literally out of nothing. If his teammates are covered and unable to run, he will distract more than one defender at a time to help create an opening.

At the age of 29, Farfan realistically only has three or four good years left. Since he has been here for this long, he might as well choose to end his club career right there in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. He still has the talent and definitely has the love for this club since he has chosen time and time again to not depart.
