Witsel expresses United interest


Zenit St Petersburg and Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel has openly revealed that he has ‘supported’ Manchester United since he was a boy and hopes to one day move to the Premier League. 

Witsel moved to Russia in 2012, after impressing in Portugal when playing for Benfica, but now has admitted that playing in England is one of his future desires. 

Speaking to Bleacher Report, the Belgian said: “I want to play in one of the top clubs in Europe one day.

“It’s true that I like the Premier League, because it is one of the best league’s in the world, for me, together with Germany and Spain. It is a very good league, it is a crazy league.”

“A lot of my colleagues play there, but we will see. I am still young, only 26. We‘ll see in the future. I have always liked Manchester United from when I was young.”
