Mourinho Speaks Up On Midfielder Deal Ahead Of Transfer Window – Four-Year Contract Offered

Following various reports linking Belgium international midfielder Marouane Fellaini away from Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho has reveals he is not involved in his potential move but rather the Board’s responsibility.

Earlier report from the Dailymail claims Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain has offered the 30-year old midfielder a four-year contract should he decides to leave Old Trafford.

The former Everton star has refuse to extend his stay at Old Trafford having rejected their previous contract and will be available on a free transfer next summer.

Mourinho wants the utility player to remain at Manchester but fear the Ligue 1 giants may snatch him next transfer window should he failed to renew his contract.

When asked what he could do to get Fellaini sign a new contract during his press Briefing, Mourinho said:


“It is a discussion between the player and the board.

“I’m not involved in contracts in deals, and I respect both.

“I respect the player because he has the right, has the right to decide his future, and I respect the board because the decisions and the discussions are under control so I just wait, wishing they will have an understanding but it’s out of my control.”

It is understood Turkish club Besiktas and Premier League rival Arsenal are also interested in the signature of Fellaini.
