Manchester United are reportedly in talks to sign Zenit Saint Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel this summer, though AC Milan are leading the chase at the moment.

Valued at a staggering £53m, the Belgian international has been superb in Russia since joining from Benfica, looking like potentially one of the best midfielders in Europe.

United need new signings in that position, and Louis van Gaal seems ready to spend big once again on enhancing his options in that area, according to the Metro.

Zenit will clearly not let Witsel leave cheap, and it has emerged that the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain may have already failed with bids for his services this summer.
