Marouane Fellaini set to agree £100,000-a-week deal with Paris Saint Germain in the summer – report

Marouane Fellaini will snub a new contract with Manchester United and instead sign a deal worth £100,000-a-week at Paris Saint Germain in the summer, according to reports from France.

The Belgian, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has been free to speak with other clubs since January, reportedly attracting interest from the likes of Galatasaray, Besiktas, Roma and Inter Milan.

Fellaini rejected terms tabled by the club in September and has shown no signs of wanting to remain at Old Trafford beyond this season, despite Mourinho imploring the Man United board to step up their efforts to offer him satisfactory terms on a new deal.

And according to French media outlet Le 10 Sport, the 30-year-old has his heart set on a £100,000-a-week deal put forward by PSG, which considerably outstrips the current £80,000-a-week he receives at United.

If the two biggest factors for Fellaini ahead of next season are playing time and money then surely a move to Turkey, where he would play a central role and earn even more than the sum offered by PSG, would be preferable, but some reports have stated that he has reservations over moving to that particular league.

In that case, venturing to Italy or France looks like his safest bet. But perhaps PSG, a club obsessed with pinching the biggest names, is a surprising candidate.

That said, if their 5-2 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid in this year’s Champions League told us anything, it is surely that they desperately lack players who will sideline personal achievement in the interests of the collective – a trait Fellaini has always offered during his time in England.
