Three-time European champions Manchester United have been dealt a big transfer blow after midfielder Marouane Fellaini was ruled out of action for a long period.
The Belgian international midfielder is almost certain to miss the next four to six weeks of football action after he suffered a calf injury.
Marouane Fellaini has fallen out of favour at Manchester United since former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the manager.
Norwegian tactician Solskjaer was made the Red Devils manager until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho was dismissed from his job as the Manchester United boss.
The Old Trafford giants were hoping to raise around £15m from the sale of Marouane Fellaini but the latest development might have jeopardized the club’s ability to raise money by selling him.
Several clubs were interested in a transfer for Fellaini and it remains to be seen whether they will retain their interest in him despite the aforementioned calf injury.
European teams like Italian Serie A club AC Milan and Portuguese champions FC Porto have registered their interest in Marouane Fellaini alongside Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.
Former Everton midfielder Fellaini has played just one game for Manchester United since Solskjaer became the manager and that was in the 2-0 victory over Reading at home in the third round of the FA Cup.
