Manchester United’s season is almost at its climax. Our first year under Jose Mourinho has definitely been a mixed one. We’ve looked pretty good in Europe, whereas our Premier League campaign has been nothing short of a disaster as we sit in a rather poor sixth place.
Part and parcel of the modern game is selling those players who have underperformed, and one footballer who has always divided the fans is Marouane Fellaini.
There has been countless of occasions where the big Belgian has cost his teammates, with my mind immediately thinking of that daft red card away at Everton, and a similar situation occurred in the Manchester derby just a few weeks ago when he also saw red.
Now, reports in Turkey via Takvim (translated via Turkish-Football) are claiming that Trabzonspor are potentially interested in taking the 29-year-old off our hands, which will be music to some fans’ ears.
“We are focusing our efforts on signing a midfielder and striker,” Trabzonspor president Muharrem Usta told Takvim, translated by Turkish-Football.com.
“We are looking for players who will improve the team and help fill our new stadium.
“The midfielders we are in talks with are Fellaini and Natcho. We are also in talks with the striker Soldado.”
My opinion is that Fellaini is a decent squad player to have when a certain system needs to be deployed, but there is no way that he is good enough to be a regular at Old Trafford.
He’s not getting any younger, so I genuinely think it’d make a whole lot of sense to get rid of him whilst we could get some sort of a transfer fee for his services. He’s always put a shift in and tried hard for the cause, but sadly, sometimes you just are not good enough for a club of this stature.
