Juventus set to beat Manchester United to signing of top class midfielder

WitselManchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are sick of hearing Juventus’ name especially as talkSPORT have revealed that Zenit St Petersburg’s Axel Witsel has hinted that he could join Juventus in the summer.

The Belgian has been countlessly linked with a move to United over the past years and it would be disappointing if they lost out on his signature due to Juve.

Punters have always thought the club stand a good chance of signing him, due to the fact his international teammates, Adnan Januzaj and Marouane Fellaini, are at the club.

But surprisingly the 26-year-old has hinted to a move to the Serie A giants.

“Joining Juventus next summer? We’ll have to wait until the summer transfer market, then we’ll see,” said Witsel.

“My youth idol was Zinedine Zidane, and I admire Andrea Pirlo a lot – he’s one of the best players in the world.”

Not only did they once possess a legendary midfield, which included Zidane, but right now they have an extremely talented squad, with Pirlo, Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal amongst the midfielders.

Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are heading over to the bar for another lager, after hearing this news, with the majority feeling that the club are lacking ambition.
