Monaco eye loan move for Manchester United’s outcast


Manchester United defensive midfielder Marouane Fellaini is on Monaco’s radar as Henry looks to bring more experienced players into his team this month.

The Frenchman is struggling to lift his team from their current relegation-threatening position and he hopes to get more established players in January so as to avoid being demoted to Ligue 2 by the end of the campaign.

Having completed his move for Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea last week, the former Les Blues striker is now targeting a loan deal for the Belgian star.

Fellaini is tipped to leave Old Trafford this month — despite having a year left in his contract — due to his inability to feature regularly at Old Trafford.

The former Everton midfielder has hardly featured under Solskjaer since the Norwegian returned to the Theater of Dreams, hence, his move away from the team seems unavoidable and imminent.

Manchester United was said to have received offers from numerous clubs from Turkish giants (Fenerbahce) and Dutch powerhouse (Ajax) but none of them have yet revealed their desire to get the experienced star.

During the previous transfer summer market — before the start of the season, Everton were reportedly interested in re-signing the Belgian star but Mourinho prevented the Toffees from reaching an agreement with the United’s hierarchy.

Should Monaco eventually sealed a six-month loan deal for the player, their midfield setup will surely take a new look as it will be occupied by world-class players — such as Cesc Fabregas and Fellaini — who can singlehandedly win many matches
