Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is in advanced negotiations with a ‘top’ Premier League side; thought to be Arsenal.
That’s according to the Belfast Telegraph, with the report adding that the 30-year-old is edging towards leaving Old Trafford on a free transfer.
United boss Jose Mourinho seems keen on keeping Fellaini in Manchester, but in this situation, the player holds all the power as he can walk away for absolutely nothing; five years on from when the Red Devils paid £27.5million to sign him from Everton.
At first, I wanted Fellaini to stay. As a plan B, he was a great option from off the substitutes bench – purely because he brings something different to the table.
However, when he was so open about blatantly holding the club to ransom, my attitude changed. No single player is bigger than the club, particularly in this case here.
Fellaini has never really been adored by the United fanbase on the whole, and the majority of supporters probably want him to leave. If he ends up at Arsenal, then so be it. Obviously, we’d all much prefer to see him sold abroad, but I certainly don’t think Gunners fans will be delighted at the prospect of bringing in the 6’5 midfielder.
