From Italy: AC Milan representatives to meet with Marouane Fellaini this week over potential move

by Leo Nieboer

AC Milan representatives will meet with Marouane Fellaini‘s entourage this week in an attempt to finalise a move away from Old Trafford, according to reports from Italy.

Jose Mourinho stressed last month that Fellaini, a player he values for his physical presence, was very close to signing a new contract with Manchester United. 

But the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio has since claimed that Fellaini would not sign a new deal at Man United and was edging towards a move to Serie A – a division he has always favoured over the Turkish Super Lig.

And according to Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, AC Milan chiefs will meet with Fellaini’s entourage and discuss the possibility of a summer move.

Fellaini earns around €10m a year at Man United, which apparently isn’t enough to keep him at the club, and AC Milan will need to lower the Belgian’s demands to bring him to the San Siro, although they are – perhaps crucially – willing to offer him the three year contract which proved to be a sticking point in negotiations with United.

Supporters are more or less universally behind the idea of moving Fellaini along in the summer. He is not, like many suggest, an awful player by any stretch, but clubs have to move on and, in the case of United, find better midfielders to properly compete with Manchester City next season.
