Ajax enter race to sign Manchester United midfielder, player set to leave Old Trafford: report

Ajax are the latest side to join in the race to sign Manchester United midfielder, Marouane Fellaini.

That’s according to Calciomercato, per talkSPORT. The report adds that the 30-year-old is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer.

On July 1st, Fellaini will become a free agent and he can sign for any club he chooses without a transfer fee, with United themselves still trying to persuade the midfielder to remain a Red Devil.

Apparently, Ajax are hoping that Fellaini will take a wage-cut in order to play regular football; which is exactly what he needs at this stage in his career.

A move to the Eredivisie giants must be an attractive prospect, particularly as they’ll challenge for the league title season-in-season-out.

Fellaini has been at United for five seasons now, and it looks as though the £27.5million the club paid to sign him won’t be recouped which is a shame. However, I’d imagine large portions of the Old Trafford fanbase won’t be too bothered about his departure.

Personally, though, I admire Fellaini. He’s always copped stick from United supporters, some of it unjust. Not once has he moaned nor bitten back. Instead, the former Everton man has always given everything. There are certainly worse options to have as a plan B, but I wish him luck wherever he ends up.
