Marouane Fellaini’s future at Manchester United still remains unresolved and as each day passes without a resolution, the midfielder is in the driving seat in deciding where he will play next season.
The Belgium international’s current deal at Old Trafford will run down after the end of the 2017/18 season. United manager Jose Mourinho is keen on handing the former Everton man a new deal in order to continue with the Red Devils beyond the summer transfer window.
Fellaini is attracting interest from clubs across Europe and also from China, reports Calciomercato, he is a transfer target for AC Milan, Napoli, Galatasaray and Besiktas.
The 30-year-old arrived at United from Everton in 2013, when former manager David Moyes was in charge at Old Trafford. He left the Merseyside club after spending five seasons with them.
After 10 years in the Premier League, Fellaini has now set his sights on a new challenge, say Calciomercato, and has told Mourinho he plans to leave.
Milan believe Fellaini’s experience of playing in the Premier League and for Belgium would suit them well. However, it should be seen whether his qualities will suit the requirements of Gennaro Gattuso.
Fellaini is currently earning €5m-a-year with the 20-time English champions, and is keen on improving his wages.
This has already ruled Napoli and Milan out of the equation. His overall display for United this season has made Milan reconsider the option of signing him. The Rossoneri feel that his wage demands, including bonuses, are way too high for a player who has hardly featured this season.
According to Calciomercato, the above mentioned points are the reasons why Milan have not made an official contact with Fellaini’s agent. In addition to this, the United midfielder is not the first choice target for the Serie A outfit.
