Why Witsel Rejected Man United For Borrusia Dortmund - Agent

Paul Stefani, Agent of Alex Witsel, has revealed his client rejected a move to Manchester United because he would be more appreciated at Borrusia Dortmund.

he Belgium International was part of the squad which finished third at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

After just one season at Chinese club, Tianjin Quanjian, Witsel has agreed to join Borrusia Dortmund in a £18m deal.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Man United tried to sign Witsel ahead of Borrusia Dortmund but he rejected the move for the Bundesliga.

“We chatted for a moment, Axel says: ‘Maybe I want to leave China’. I say to him laughing: ‘Axel, I promise that I will come up with something really great,” Stefani told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“I remembered that a few months earlier I had been toDortmund, where I met someone from the club. I call that man and he brings me into contact with the management.

“Sports director Michael Zorc and CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke invited me to come and talkat a time when Axel was at the World Cup in Russia. There I heard that Dortmund were looking for a player like Witsel.

“I explained to them that the Portuguese lawyer of Witsel has negotiated a buy-out clause of €20m with Tianjin. That sounded like music to them, because they thought that Tianjin would ask for an amount of around €60m for Axel.

"When the transfer later started rolling, the Chinese still tried to get out of that buyout clause, but it was conclusive.

“There were other candidates. Manchester United wanted him, Napoli too. But I told Axel: ‘At Dortmund you are the number one, at Manchester you are one of the many… and at Napoli too’.”
