Marouane Fellaini Signs New Manchester United Contract, Fans React

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."
