Man Utd fan Witsel re-iterates Premier League dream

Zenit Saint Petersburg ace Axel Witsel has again highlighted his desire to one day play for one of Europe's biggest clubs.

The 26-year old Belgian midfielder has previously stated that he would love to make his home at Manchester United - the club he supported as a boy - and has re-iterated that stance in an interview with Tuttosport.

"The voices of the market? I know nothing. Sure I love the Premier League and United ever since I was little," he said.

"Sooner or later I want to play in one of the best clubs in Europe. I'm still young. I'll see what the future holds."

Witsel has been with Zenit since joining from Benfica in September 2012 after beginning his senior career with hometown club Standard Liege in 2006.
