AC Milan chasing Fellaini.

I am sure as Manchester United supporters you have read the news that AC Milan are chasing Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini. Fellaini brought in the summer of 2013 by David Moyes who of course also signed him for Everton during his reign at Goodison Park.  Fellaini hasn’t exactly set the world alight at Old Trafford frustrating the supporters on many occasions .

Van Gaal seems to like playing the fuzzy haired midfielder playing him as a striker on many occasions when United are behind playing the long ball game but as we all know this is simply not the United way . Sky Italia broke the news at Lunchtime today that AC Milan are looking at potentially bringing him to the San Siro.

Would he fit into Italian football a lovely passing game and very tactical lets be fair properly not a big bruising midfielder trying to play a controlled passing game but that wont bother the United fans they will be ecstatic to see the back of him.  Fellaini has been a big disappointment since coming to Manchester his stats at Everton were very good he was an enigma against the Red Devils every time he played against them scoring on many occasions including a wonderful header past Edwin Van Der Sar in a thrilling draw.

Moyes bought Fellaini for twenty seven million pounds an insane amount of money considering what he has done for the club that is  more than Herrera and slightly less than Mata two far more accomplished players in his position .  When Van Gaal brought in center midfielders Morgan Scheiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger in the summer you thought that was a way of showing Fellaini the door .

However the Belgian stayed and has played regular Football that has had many supporters scratching their heads and wondering why oh why is he still here.   The answer is to come on when behind and lump it up to him this is Van Gaals plan B an extremely negative style of football .

He is also a very vulnerable player by this I mean he picks up far to many bookings and gives the ball away often . Last week at St James Park he had the perfect chance to win the game but headed the ball straight at Rob Elliot this was the final straw in many fans eyes. From corners hes pretty ineffective for the size of him getting beat to many times in the air or fouling his opponents by jumping with his elbows raised.

You may think i am  being very harsh he has had the odd good game but just not enough for a team of Manchester United stature i thought after the West Bromich Albion away game last season this was the turning point in his United career but no he went back to his mediocre performances.

A move is on the cards but i think he needs to go to a so called lower Premier League club as his psychical presence wont suit the Italian style like i mentioned earlier on in this article.

As always thanks for reading
