Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta confirms contacts with Zenit St Petersburg for Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel.
The Bianconeri were close signing the Belgian midfielder in the summer transfer window, but the Russian club rejected agreement on transfer deadline day.
Marotta was interviewed on Radio Achi’io Sport, and he discussed about Witsel and the Boca Juniors player, Rodrigo Bentancur.
“I will not deny that we are working for these two players. We have the right of first buyers for Bentancur which expires in April 2017. We will not sign him in January, but next year, “said the director of the ‘Old Lady.
“Witsel is a possibility, because his contract expires in 2017. We have had contact with Zenit to sign him, and we remain in touch to get the final answer,” concluded Marotta.
