Arsenal are believed to be preparing an surprise £18m move for Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini, claim Caught Offside. The Belgian was David Moyes’ first signing as United boss, and cost the club a hefty £27.5m; Almost £2m per Premier League appearance so far.
The 26-year old has struggled to get to grips with life at Manchester United since day one, and hasn’t been anywhere near as good as the player he was in his final season at Everton.
The huge transfer fee was always going to be looming over Fellaini should he fail, and its true that injuries certainly haven’t helped the situation, but its fair to say we all expected much more from the holding midfielder.
Now, just ten months on, he was left out of Ryan Giggs’ first match day squad completely and it certainly looks as though his days at United could already be numbered. If an £18m offer does come in from another club, It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if Manchester United choose to cut their losses on Marouane Fellaini at the first possibly opportunity.
