Borussia Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel has revealed how close he was to joining Juventus. “I only had to sign the contract.”
Witsel to Juve was one of the longest-running transfer sagas throughout 2016, but the midfielder ended up leaving Zenit St Petersburg for Chinese club Tianjin Tianhai the following January.
He has now revealed that he even underwent a medical with the Bianconeri, only for Zenit to change his mind at the 11th hour.
