Much debate has surrounded the future of Manchester United’s bumbling Belgian Marouane Fellaini. Moyes’ main man endured a torrid first season at Old Trafford and unimpressive displays at the World Cup have led manager Louis Van Gaal to settle the debate by claiming, according to the express, “he is not a United player”.
Unsurprisingly this view of Van Gaals is contrary to the opinion of former United boss David Moyes who believes Marouane settled into the team at the back end of last season and was a key feature of United’s attack. He recently said, “I believe he has the potential to go on and be a good United player”. To the eyes of most of the footballing world these words are an attempt to justify the Scotsman’s £27 million pound gamble last summer and not any real vote of confidence.
News of Felliani’s future or lack thereof does not come as much of a surprise with a big money move for a central midfielder laying in the horizon. Recouping as much of the initial fee paid would surely be put towards this and it is understood that United would sell for as low as £15 million.
Finding a suitor for Felliani may be tough due to his regression from Everton favourite to United misfit but any manager willing to operate with him playing in his favourite number 10 role would likely take him of Van Gaal’s hands
