Jose Mourinho rekindles interest in Axel Witsel

After a remarkable first half of the season with Borussia Dortmund, Axel Witsel could be on his way out of the club, with Premier League giants tipped to make an attempt in January

Named by many of his BVB teammates as their crucial player in the fantastic first half of the season, the Belgium international has attracted the interest of several Premier League giants, including Manchester United.

According to ESPN FC, the Red Devils have rekindled their interest in the 29-year-old midfielder, as Jose Mourinho regrets picking Fred over Witsel last summer.

Although the Portuguese manager wanted to sign former Zenit St. Petersburg star, he eventually opted for the £52m-rated Shakhtar Donetsk man.

Now that the 25-year-old Brazilian failed to impress Mourinho, ex-Real Madrid boss would like to land his old target.

However, considering the impact Witsel made since his £18m transfer from Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian, it is highly improbable Lucien Favre would give the green light to his sale already in January.
