Witsel Completes Move To China, Set To Collect €300,000 Per WeekThe Belgium international was widely expected to complete a protracted switch to Juventus but has opted for the higher wages on offer from Tianjin Quanjian
Axel Witsel
has completed his January transfer to Chinese Super League outfit Tianjin Quanjian after turning down Juventus.
The 27-year-old came within hours of joining the Italian giants in the summer, only for a deadline-day move to fall through, and was widely expected to complete the protracted transfer this month.
However interest from China, which included a reported wage of €300,000 [£254,000] a week, has seen the Belgium international join the likes of Oscar and Tevez in making the move to the Far East for a fee understood to be €21 million [£18m].
Witsel, who has made 76 appearances for Belgium, will now play under former World Cup-winning captain Fabio Cannavaro at Tianjin after penning a five-year deal.
“It was a very difficult decision because on one hand there was a great team and a top club like Juventus,” Witsel toldTuttosporton Monday. “But on the other there was a crucial offer for my family that I couldn’t turn down.
“The directors at Juventus have always behaved like gentlemen with me and I can only be grateful to them.
“I will cheer for Juventus and I hope they can win the Champions League. Then who knows, maybe one day in the future our paths will finally meet.”
