Marouane Fellaini

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been a player that draws a lot of criticisms from fans of the club, as many see him as a reminder of the ill-fated days of the David Moyes era.

The Belgian was signed by David Moyes in the summer of 2013 from Everton and regardless of the opinions of the fans has been a mainstay for the different managers the club has had since he arrived.

Present boss Jose Mourinho is a huge advocate of the 30-year old and is believed to be seeking a contract extension for the player at the club.

Latest reports, however, suggest that Fellaini has no intentions of signing a new contract and is ready to leave the club.

The former Everton star has just 6 months left on his Man United deal and is believed to have started negotiations with interest clubs as he prepares for a move away from Old Trafford.

This will comes as a big blow for Mourinho who has seen the Belgian star reject contract talks earlier in the season and this decision might force the Portuguese manager into looking for midfield replacements in the January transfer window.

It isn’t quite clear when the midfielder intends to leave but it is believed he is open to either a January move or a move later in the summer.
