Manchester United and Chelsea interested in Belgian international midfielder


Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel, according to reports.

The 26-year-old is one of the main targets for Serie A champions Juventus but the Red Devils and the Blues are ready to battle to sign the Zenit Saint Petersburg midfielder.

But as confirmed by the player himself, the Bianconeri are strong favourites to complete a transfer.

"I'm 26 years old, the best age to try a new experience," Witsel told Sudinfo.

"I always said that I did not want to leave Zenit without lifting the league title. It's done.

"My favourite league? I don't have one. My goal is just to move to a top club in a top league.

"There have been discussions [with Juventus] and they are continuing. This is a super team with a beautiful project to become again what it was in the days of [Zinedine] Zidane and [Pavel] Nedved.

"The contact is ongoing, with both me and Zenit. [Turin] is a destination that could suit me."
