Given the raft of expensive attacking options brought in by Paris Saint-Germain over the past couple of months, inevitable speculation quickly began circling that Julian Draxler was eyeing up a quick getaway.
However, the German winger stayed put in Paris and even celebrated his 24th birthday on Wednesday with a special party that included a gigantic PSG-themed birthday cake.

With a beaming smile, birthday balloons and a cake the size of a small family...
