Manchester United could potentially lose Marouane Fellaini on a free transfer this summer.
That’s according to The Times, who says that the Belgium international has been offered a three-year contract by AC Milan.
Apparently, Fellaini’s preference is to remain a Red Devil, with the 30-year-old wanting his future sorted before he jets off to the World Cup next week.
The midfielder hasn’t featured much recently, and it’s fair to say that large sections of the Old Trafford fanbase have never really taken to Fellaini – personally, I don’t think that’s ever going to change.
For what it’s worth, I don’t think he deserves half the criticism that he gets, and as a plan B, there are certainly worse options to have coming off the substitutes bench.
With that said, I don’t feel he should hold the club to ransom. United will always be bigger than any individual player, and I feel that Fellaini is playing a dangerous game – particularly if he does in fact, want to stay in Manchester.
Whatever the decision, we should hear the outcome soon enough, but personally, I won’t be that fussed either way. It’s certainly going to be intriguing to see what happens, though.
