On Tuesday, The Mirror ran a report on Manchester United’s willingness to listen to offers for Marouane Fellaini, with £15 million believed to be enough to convince the club to sell.
The Belgium international only signed a new two-year deal last summer and could be on his way out already.
Fellaini was not even in the squad on Sunday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley.
The report from the Mirror claims AC Milan, FC Porto and Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande are all monitoring Fellaini’s situation with interest.
He’s 31-years-old and has the mobility of a baby elephant. United’s new approach on the pitch won’t suit a player like that and it’s no wonder his days at Old Trafford are numbered.
The midfielder’s significant salary may knock United’s hopes of moving Fellaini on this month, an all too common mistake at the club by offering crazy contracts to sub-standard players.
Here are some reactive tweets following the latest on Fellaini:
FFS! Said I was happy Fellaini was going on tonight’s video and the amount of United fan sticking up for him wanting him to stay…..Clearly still suffering with the Stoke 2009 Mourinho virus. Get down the Doctor’s! Ole’s at the wheel and we don’t play hoof ball

If and it’s a big if, that sack of shit Fellaini is sold this window, I hope it’s for the exact fee Jose was paid off for. Then we technically got rid of the two most negative people ever at the club, for free.

Things we need to do this summer:
– Appoint Ole as our permanent manager.
– DoF is needed
– Make Pogba captain
– Sign Koulibaly and RW
– Sell Fellaini and buy Ndombele
– De Gea, Herrera and Martial new contracts
Give me this @ManUtd please.

Disco Mirror says Fellaini will be the first to go, James Ducker says Rojo will be the first to go.
Let the games begin.

What excuses will the ‘top reds’ have once Fellaini is sold to China ? pic.twitter.com/QMyHfKQiYQ

Anytime you see Fellaini on a football pitch.

Marcos Rojo and Fellaini are competing to be the first ones to leave the club. Haha

They should keep Fellaini as a sub. If the player is willing to play that part. When the honeymoon is over and realities comes at hand we will miss Fellaini at the end of games sometimes. Hopefully not but…..

God I hope this is true, we’ve held on to this kind of shite for far to long. I’d rather Ole promote young academy players than put up with the likes of Rojo & Fellaini much longer. I won’t knock Valencia however because this season aside he had been very consistent for us.
