"I can fully understand Mario's decision from a sporting point of view. Bayern are the ultimate team in Europe at the moment," Draxler told Welt.
"So in my opinion it makes sense that he wants to play there and jumped at the chance to work with Pep Guardiola."
Meanwhile, Draxler himself signed a new contract with Schalke until June 2018 earlier this summer and snubbed interest from Chelsea.
