Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Marouane Fellaini, for a fee around the £27.5m mark. The midfielder will certainly add a lot to our squad and offer us something different, and contrary to what many fans believe, Fellaini is an excellent footballer. The 25-year old scored 32 goals for Everton before his departure.
It was always going to be Marouane Fellaini, and no doubt he’ll make us a better side. Its just disappointing he’s coming alone, and overall it has been a shocking transfer window for a club of our stature.
Manchester United manager David Moyes said:
“I have worked with Marouane for five years and I’m delighted he has decided to join Manchester United. He is a player with great ability and strength and I think he will make a real difference to our squad.
“I am thrilled to sign for Manchester United. I have known the manager for many years now and I have a lot of respect for his way of working. When I was given the opportunity to work with him again, I jumped at the chance. I had a fantastic time at Everton and I’d like to thank all the fans and staff there for everything they have done for me. But being a Manchester United player is something that every player dreams of and I believe that I can make a real contribution to the team’s efforts to win trophies in the future.”
