Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini has rejected a new contract at the club and could walk away for free in the summer, reports The Sun.
The midfielder will be free to speak to other clubs as early as January about signing a pre-contract deal, with big interest coming from Turkish club Besiktas.
Apparently, a two-year deal is on the table for Fellaini, the terms of which aren’t to the players liking. However, if no new agreement between player and club is made, United still won’t sell the former Everton man in January. Instead, they’d prefer to risk losing him on a free.
It seems odd that this contract dispute is happening at the time where Fellaini is probably impressing the fans more than any other part of his Old Trafford career. He’s certainly not helping himself right now, but at the end of the day, he has to put his family before us fans.
Would I want to see him stay? I’ve always been an admirer of him, so yes, I would. However, the majority of United fans wouldn’t be bothered to see the back of him, particularly if he doesn’t want to put pen to paper on this deal that is currently on the table.
