Club Hoping To Agree A Deal For Marouane Fellaini Join Them Next Year

Reports have surfaced claiming that Marouane Fellaini could well be Turkey-bound, but not until next season rolls around.

Last month, speculation was rife that the big Belgian was on his way out of Old Trafford, with Galatasaray's Sporting Director Cenk Ergun revealing, via Turkish Football, that a deal was close for the Europa League winning midfielder.

"There will be surprises, we are in talks with Fellaini," he said.

"We have made an approach, we are close and if we get Fellaini we will end our pursuit of N'Diaye.

"We need a player like Fellaini who can shuttle around in midfield."

After Fellaini struck in a 3-0 pre-season win over Norwegian side Valerenga in Oslo on July 30, Jose Mourinho categorically denied the reports and stressed Fellaini's importance to him and his side.

Speaking to the press after the game, as quoted by Sky Sports, Mourinho said Fellaini "is too important" to him and joked that there was more chance of Galatasaray succeeding in signing him than United's big-haired midfielder.

Galatasaray's unsuccessful move culminated in them snapping up Badou Ndiaye as an alternative, but now, according to Bleacher Report's Dean Jones, Fenerbahce, another Turkish outfit, have registered interest in Fellaini and are looking to thrash out a deal that will see the former Everton man join the club next summer.

Fellaini, who moved to Old Trafford for £27.5 million having been signed by David Moyes on deadline day in 2013, has made three substitute appearances so far this season and was on the scoresheet in United's 2-0 win over Leicester City in Saturday's late kick-off.

United fans, would you happy to see the back of Fellaini next season?

Sound off in the comments.
