Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is all set to leave Manchester United this month with a number of clubs ready to secure his signature.
The Belgian is set to become the first player under Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s reign to see the exit door– with Manchester United prepared to look into offers for the midfielder.
Fellaini has appeared in just two games out of six under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and looks to be out of favor in the eyes of United’s current management. Despite signing a new two-year contract with United last summer, it seems quite clear that United will let Fellaini leave this month – however just if the cost is correct.
Under Solskjaer, Fellaini has played just 31 minutes of football and was not even in the 18-man squad that beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley on Sunday.
According to a report by TalkSport, Fellaini looks to be on borrowed time with the United squad and he doesn’t look happy. Sports Broadcaster Jim White is of the view that Ole has completely overhauled the state of Manchester United and there is no space left for the likes of Marouane Fellaini.
“Solskjaer isn’t just putting his own mark on the field, he’s doing it off the field, too, which makes you think this might not be a stop-gap measure,” Jim said.
“If you haven’t noticed, United players are turning up and leaving games in the shirt, tie and suits and that’s because, I hear from inside the club, Solskjaer wants them to look and feel that they do indeed represent Manchester United.”
“It’s now become apparent Marouane Fellaini can go amid talk Solskjaer is unhappy with his attitude,” claimed Jim.
“It’s my understanding he could go in this window and so might Scott McTominay, but it’s clear that Fellaini, and specifically Fellaini, is on borrowed time.”
Players are in suits, as Solskjaer wants them to feel they represent United.” “Fellaini can go, he isn’t happy with his attitude. He’s on borrowed time.” “Utd have become Utd under Ole.” @JimWhite reveals some insider news from Manchester United 🔴 #MUFC https://t.co/sShDmuUaC2
Possible Destinations for Marouane Fellaini?
AC Milan, Porto, and Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande have all identified the Belgian as a transfer target, with United said to be demanding around £15million for the multi-talented 31-year-old.
With a year and a half left on his present contract, United are hesitant to let Fellaini go at little to no cost and would look to reinvest money from his deal in the first team squad.
Fellaini was bought by previous United manager David Moyes for £27million from Everton in 2013 and, in spite of huge criticism from fans, was additionally profoundly respected by his successors, Louis van Gaal, and Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho had a specific weakness for Fellaini, using his physical and flying danger when essential, yet Solskajer’s diverse methodology and style of play has no space for the player, whose United days are numbered.
