European giant AC Milan have entered contract negotiations with Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
That’s according to Corriere dello Sport, translated by The Express. They add that the 30-year-old, who is out of contract in June, is still wanted by Jose Mourinho.
However, United’s power could have been taken from their hands, with the decision now lies solely with the Belgium international. On a free transfer, Fellaini will undoubtedly have the choice of a whole host of clubs as there will be no transfer fee involved; meaning he can either go with the money, or choose a team, city or lifestyle that suits him most.
As a plan B, I’ve always admired the work Fellaini does. However, we seen just last night that this lad isn’t worthy of a regular starting place at Manchester United.
I wouldn’t mind keeping him around as a back-up option from off the substitutes bench, but if he’s holding the club to ransom, then I’m all for letting him go and bringing in a younger replacement.
With all that said, I just get this horrible feeling that United and Mourinho are going to give in to his contractual demands. At 30, it just doesn’t seem like the smart business decision.
