Manchester United are unimpressed by the asking price from Benfica for Axel Witsel.

The Belgium international has been tracked by United since his time at Standard Liege and is under consideration as a long-term replacement for Paul Scholes.

United have asked Benfica about Witsel's availability and were quoted a price of €23 million - which has left manager Sir Alex Ferguson unimpressed.
