Jose Mourinho target explains £18m summer transfer to Dortmund



Borussia Dortmund midfield Axel Witsel has explained why he moved to the Bundesliga in the summer.
The Belgium enforcer, who has recently been linked with Manchester United, was understood to be on the radar of Jose Mourinho in the summer, while PSG were also said to be interested in him.
Witsel, 29, though, who arrived in the summer for around £18million after an 18-month exile in China, only had eyes for Dortmund, despite talk of interest from German giants Bayern Munich.
Asked why decided to move to Dortmund, he told Bild: “Because I felt that Dortmund is the right choice. I knew from the beginning that I have the quality to assert myself here and to help.

Belgium source HLN claimed that Mourinho was also running the rule over Witsel.
ESPN also last month claimed Mourinho rem...
