Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has branded Schalke a "mysterious club" for the way they conducted negotiations over the transfer of Julian Draxler.
Draxler, 21, moved to Wolfsburg on the last day of the transfer window, despite having been linked with Juve for much of the summer.
The Bianconeri's initial offer was rejected out of hand by Schalke, although Marotta says it was the Bundesliga side's demands and not his club's offer which was laughable.
