Marouane Fellaini edges closer to AC Milan move in January transfer window – report

by Leo Nieboer

Marouane Fellaini could be set to end his disappointing spell at Manchester United by joining AC Milan in the January transfer window, according to the Times.

The Belgian has allegedly told team-mates at Old Trafford that he’s thinking about leaving next month after losing his place in the first-team.

He started one game in the past two months and was also booed by supporters as he came off the bench during the 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on December 11, following his mistake against Everton the week earlier.

Fellaini was spotted in Milan yesterday with his brother and Paul Hirst claims that the Italian club are still interested in the 29-year-old.

AC Milan were linked with a move for Fellaini in the summer but a deal could not be finalised, however with 18 months left on his United contract, he could be approaching the end of his career at Old Trafford.

David Moyes signed him from Everton for £27.5 million in September 2013 and he hasn’t been able to win over supporters with his disappointing performances at the club.

Although he has found an improved role under Mourinho, especially at the start of the season, the Portuguese boss hasn’t been able to give him the minutes he’s currently looking for.
