Tianjin Quanjian coach Sousa calm over Man Utd, BVB talk for Witsel

Tianjin Quanjian coach Paulo Sousa insists they're under no pressure to sell Axel Witsel.

The Belgium midfielder has been offered to Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United this week, says BILD.

But Sousa insists he expects Witsel to stay this season.

"I have received no information about Witsel's transfer situation, neither from the club nor from the player himself," Sousa told CGTN.

"So as I understand it, he has a clause in his contract, but this clause can only be triggered within the [Chinese] transfer windows, and that has already shut in China.This transfer will not happen."
