Schalke chief executive Clemens Tonnies has declared that the club will not stop Julian Draxler from leaving for Real Madrid.

The 19-year-old has become one of the hottest properties in European football in recent times, with Real and Chelsea among the sides to be linked with a move for the Germany international.

Draxler, who signed a new five-year deal with Schalke earlier in the off-season, had previously admitted that it would be hard to turn down a move to one of Europe’s top clubs, and Tonnies revealed they would be willing to part company with the teenager if the right offer came along.

“It is not necessarily a bad thing when a club like Chelsea are interested. Julian is an important player for Schalke and we obviously want to hold on to him,” he told Express.

“However, if you want the best for someone, you will have to consider allowing him to move abroad at some point.

“What are we supposed to tell Julian when a club like Real Madrid make an enquiry for him? Tell him not to speak to them? That would simply be ridiculous. Those days are behind us now.”

Draxler made 33 appearances for Schalke last season, scoring 13 goals.
