Though the transfer window may have closed the clubs are still working underground ahead for January and next summer so we’ll be getting you the latest gossip from around the world. Today, Marouane Fellaini is linked with a shock move to Arsenal…
Arsenal seems to be more than interested in Manchester Uniteds midfielder Marouane Fellaini as they get ready to cash Manchester with £8m this winter, according to reports in Italy via Team Talk.
Back in 2013 Fellaini was been fetched for from Everton by the Emirates boss but was snatched away by David Moyes the former United boss with a whooping £27m price before he could complete the deal with Everton.
Fellaini’s game play had not been a full score with Old Trafford but the champ still ranked up a sum of 142 game appearance for the first team over the past four years. Apparently he has been more useful than expected. The Belgian international has been able to win the heart of Jose Mourinho but the 29-year-old but hasn’t been able to make a permanent stand in the first team as he keeps going exchanging positions with the first team and the bench. So far he has played 3 Premier League games and none of the Champions League this season.
Presently Fellaini is on his final lap with United as his contract ends this year and he has refused to renew his contract. This increases the possibility of the midfielder walking away from the club on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.
As it looks the United isn’t interested in such pattern for the midfielder as information from team talk holds that United would be cashing in about the sum of £8m for the 28 years old by the January window. Couple of clubs had shown interest in Fellaini but its Arsenal that seem to be with the best push for the sign up. Sooner than expected the Fellaini would be welcomed I the Emirates stadium if it all goes well. The gunners did have some criticism of having a soft sport and Sir Arsene Winger is said to believe Fellaini is the spicy touch needed for the Gunners midfield.
To some level its understanding if United doesn’t want to sell Fellaini off to Arsenal as they see it as a treat and decide to sell off to an abroad club by winter. However, there isnt much United can do to hold back the player from seeing out the rest of his contract and joining Arsenal on a free transfer at the end of the season if he decides to link-up with the Gunners.
With soo much drama in the air amongst this club we’ll just have to wait and see how it all plays out over the coming months.
