Football Italia reports that Fellaini’s €25m valuation is too much for AC Milan and says they have had a loan move in which Man United continued to pay part of the Belgian’s wages, but it was rejected.
As it stands, AC Milan are sixth in Serie A and eight points off top but are still some way off their inner city rivals Inter Milan which could explain why they’d be interested in bringing in reinforcements in January.
That being said, even Fellaini’s biggest detractors would surely agree the idea of loaning him out in January when our squad is already thin would be a bad one. So, I imagine any moves for him would be rejected out of hand unless Milan came in with a substantial offer.
At a time where United are struggling for points, goals and performances, letting go of any first-team player, regardless of whether they are crucial or mainly a substitute, isn’t something Louis van Gaal will be doing any time soon unless we’re given an offer we can’t refuse.
