As per Manchester Evening News‘ who are citing a report from Germany by Bild, the 29-year-old has been offered to the club by Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian.
Witsel was of course linked to Manchester United and a host of big clubs prior to his move to Asia a couple of years ago.
Mourinho has recently admitted that he is expecting the club to complete at least one new signing before the transfer window closes next week.
