Marouane Fellaini has signed a two-year deal with Manchester United amid news he might be departing - and some supporters aren't best pleased.
The towering midfielder was thought to be making a move away from Old Trafford, but news emerged this week that Man United were conjuring up a new deal, much to supporters' dismay.
And now - via the BBC Sport website - it's official, the Belgium international has put pen to paper and signed a deal that will see him remain with the club until 2020, with an option for another season.
After signing the deal, Fellaini said via the BBC: "I made this decision because I am very happy here," said Fellaini.
"I feel like this team, under Jose, still has a lot we want to achieve. I would like to say a special thank you to Jose for the faith he has always shown in me."
But supporters are furious with the news. The were hoping for a fresh start, as boss Jose Mourinho enters his third season in charge.

This is the worst news I've seen in a long time pertaining to our club...- Andrew Southwick (@RedBeardedRed) June 29, 2018
I support a club that was getting held to ransom by Marouane Fellaini and we gave in and agreed to give him what he wants. Great.

Boss Mourinho said about the deal: "I am very happy Marouane is staying with us. I always believed in his desire to stay with the club and I am delighted that he has signed a new contract."
Since his move from Everton for £27 million in 2013, Fellaini has scored 20 goals in 156 appearances for the Red Devils. Could there be plenty more to come?
