Left on loan at Benfica, Julian Draxler returned to his departure from PSG in the last hours of the summer transfer window.
Promised to a role of extra within the workforce of the PSG and pushed out by Parisian leaders, Julian Draxler had to resolve to leave the capital club this summer. Direction Benfica, where the 2014 world champion was loaned for one year without a purchase option.
Questioned by the streamer Broski, the German international returned to this transfer. “The night I signed for Benfica was a sleepless night, he confided. I was in a complicated situation with my pregnant wife. I got a call and had to say yes or no. I answered yes. I packed my bags and had to tell my wife I was going to Lisbon. It was very spontaneous. There were several things to negotiate, but I think PSG also tried to make things a little easier.
To convince all parties, PSG has indeed agreed to compensate for his loss of salary to Benfica, which pays him €2 million net over the season instead of €4.2 million, by paying him €1.5 million in the form of premium and bonus. The Parisian leaders have also undertaken to pay him an annual salary of €5.5 million in 2023-2024 if he honors his last year of contract in Paris.
