Cape Town - Schalke's interest in Manchester City's out of favour defender Matija Nastasic could lead to their star player, Julian Draxler, leaving the club according to theDaily Star.

The Bundesliga club are keen on ending Nastasic's nightmare stay in England but now any deal for the Serbian defender could lead to Germany international midfielder, Julian Draxler, heading the other way.

Schalke will reportedly accept a fee in the region of £25 million for Draxler.

The 21-year-old World Cup winner has failed to reproduced last season's form with Schalke due to a number of niggling injuries and is rumoured to favour a move to England.

Manuel Pellegrini will attempt to lure Draxler to England and more specifically Manchester, despite years of interest from rivals Arsenal.

Nastasic has long been linked with a move away from the Etihad but with a player plus cash deal for Draxler looming, the young defender may get his move in January.
