Marouane Fellaini will quit Manchester United this summer for a new challenge according to reports.
Out of contract this month and free to arrange a deal with any club outside the Premier League, Fellaini’s future has long been one of concern for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.
Manchester United now find themselves in the strange situation where a player with Fellaini’s limited qualities effectively has them begging him to stay. So much so that Jose Mourinho is still hoping he can persuade Fellaini to stay on their current trip to Dubai.
However, it is understood that Fellaini wants a new challenge away from Manchester United. And whilst this thirst for a new challenge may well be driven by the fact that he’s a free agent and can expect substantial wages at his new club and a signing on fee running in to millions, the reality is Marouane Fellaini is somewhat of a divider when it comes to Manchester United fan opinion.
Whilst some will miss the big man’s no nonsense approach and effort levels, others will rejoice in the departure of a player who symbolises the route one direct football many United fans detest.
