Despite his round-table discussion with José Mourinho, Manchester United and Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini is set to end his five-year stay at Old Trafford this summer, according to AC Milan chief Massimiliano Mirabelli.
The Belgian midfielder would see out his contract with the Red Devils this summer and he has decided not to renew his contract, hoping to move to another club where he would be used more regularly in the coming season.
AC Milan, last week, were reported to have developed an interest in his signature and they remain keen on luring him to the San Siro Stadium after the summer World Cup which will Kickstart in less than a month.
While reacting to the club’s decision to move for Fellaini’s services, Mirabelli confirmed that Fellaini has played his last match for United as he won’t extend his contract with the Premier League giants.
“We know he is not going to renew with United, but it’s difficult to say that we have closed the deal. He has important attributes. We will do something in that role but we are keeping everything in reserve.” he said.
However, he revealed that the Serie A giants haven’t reached an agreement with United over the possibility of releasing him in the summer.
Should he join AC Milan in the summer, the sporting director believes the experienced midfielder would be an important player in the team during the 2018-19 season.
“Fellaini could be an important player, he is,” Mirabelli said.
Fellaini made a much-anticipated switch to Old Trafford from Goodison Park, Everton, in 2013. He has featured in 155 matches for the Red Devils in all competitions, scoring 20 goals in the process.
