Marouane Fellaini has decided to leave Manchester United, and he’s in talks about a potential move to AS Roma, according to the Daily Express.
Apparently, the Red Devils wanted the Belgium international to stay at Old Trafford, with the club making a contract offer. However, Fellaini was unhappy with the length of the proposed contract and now he’s ready to move elsewhere.
The player knows that now he’s 30, he’s probably only got one more big contract left in him, and you can understand his frustration at only being offered a short-term deal.
Galatasaray have offered the 6’4 midfielder a sizeable three-year package, but Fellaini wants a move to Italy instead as he feels it’ll suit his style of play, while being much better for his family.
It’s been a tough few years for the former Everton midfielder. For whatever reason, the Red Devils fans never really took to Fellaini’s style, but sometimes, he has been unfairly treated. Can you really blame him for wanting to leave fans who’ve booed him on a regular basis? Probably not.
While it’s gutting that we’ll lose him on a free transfer, I fully understand his decision and wish him luck wherever he ends up.
