Marouane Fellaini

Three-time European champions Manchester United have confirmed the departure of midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian international player has completed his move to Chinese Super League outfit Shandong Luneng Taishan in a deal reported to be around £10m.

The former Anderlecht star had earlier passed his medicals and also agreed to terms with the Chinese club.

The 31-year-old will earn a whopping £235,000 on a weekly basis at Shandong Luneng.

The above salary for Marouane Fellaini is after tax.

The transfer window in England is closed but Marouane Fellaini was able to swap the Premier League for China with the transfer window still open in the Asian country.

Manchester United confirmed his exit from the club via social media on Friday afternoon.

The Belgian leaves the Red Devils after falling out of favour with new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Norwegian tactician Solskjaer has featured Fellaini once in his Manchester United team since he was made the interim manager in the second week of December.

His sole appearance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in the FA Cup during the third round clash with Reading.

Marouane Fellaini, 31, came off the bench during the game which ended in a 2-0 victory over the struggling English Championship club.
