On that note, here is a look at the top transfer news, rumours, and updates of the day:
Manchester United eye Borussia Dortmund's Axel Witsel
Manchester United have endured a tough start to the season as they currently stand 7th on the Premier League with just 21 points from 13 matches. The Red Devils undeniably need some reinforcements and Borussia Dortmund's Axel Witsel reportedly finds himself on the watch list, according to reports from ESPN.
United were previously believed to be interested in Witsel, earlier in the summer, but Fred's acquisition encumbered any potential moves. However, the report claims that Jose Mourinho is still keen on the Belgian.
Mourinho travelled to watch Belgium play during the international break, despite Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku being ruled out, and was reportedly present to watch Witsel.
The 29-year-old joined Dortmund only at the start of the current season, but has become a crucial component in the team's success as they sit pretty atop the Bundesliga table, 9 points and 4 places ahead of rivals, Bayern Munich.
Witsel's performances have allegedly caught Mourinho's eye, as the Portuguese tactician is believed to be inclined towards strengthening his defence. The report claims that while a move for Witsel in January may seem a little unlikely, a summer move is definitely still on the cards.
