Belgian international Axel Witsel will be announced as a Juventus player shortly and will put pen to paper on a long-term contract.
According to calciomercato.com, Axel Witsel underwent a medical today in Belgium ahead of his move to the bianconeri. The midfielder passed it and an official announcement is expected to be made shortly by either Juventus or Zenit. Witsel was on international duty when Juventus acquired him and the midfielder had to leave the Belgian camp to complete the move.
Juventus have been in the market for another midfielder since Paul Pogba left to Manchester United and appear to have gotten their man. They were previously interested in Paris Saint-Germain’s Blaise Matuidi but the midfielder recently signed a contract extension. This signing is Juventus’ second one of the day as Juan Cuadrado’s move from Chelsea to the Italian champions has most recently been confirmed.
