Manchester United have been given the all-clear to sign Axel Witsel – if the Red Devils want him, according to Belgian source HLN.
The midfielder is ready to leave Zenit St Petersburg after three years of playing in Russia and Witsel is known to be a big admirer of United.
His father Thierry said: “Axel has never regretted his move from Benfica to Zenit, but three years St. Petersburg has been enough.
‘We hope to leave in style with a title in our pockets. For the moment Zenit have an eight-point advantage over second place.”
