Manchester United midfielder Moaurone Fellaini is currently in talks with Chinese Super Lig side Shandong Luneng. The 31-year-old has about 18 more months on his current deal with the Red Devils after joining them in 2013 – Fellaini last featured for the Old Trafford outfit in United’s 5-2 win over Cardiff City last month.
The Belgium international’s current deal with the Red Devils will expire in the summer of 2020 after signing a contract extension with the club under Jose Mourinho. Fellaini joined United from Everton in 2013 in a deal valued around £29.16 million and was highly instrumental under former managers.
However, since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Russia 2018 bronze medal midfielder has been relegated to the bench. According to BBC, the Belgian star can still join the Chinese club as the transfer window in that league does not close until 28 February. However, the Red Devils are refusing to reveal if the two clubs have reached an agreement for the forward. Mourinho fought hard to land the former Everton player a contract extension last season, with United eventually relenting after being reluctant to hand him a two-year deal. But he does not fit in with the fluent and attacking brand of football introduced by Solskjaer.
The attacker won one Europa League, one FA Cup, an EFL Cup, and a Community Shield during his six-season reign at Old Trafford. Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be on his way out of Old Trafford after failing to play in Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s starting line up. Over the years, the Belgian has been one of the mainstays in the Red Devils’ first-team squad since joining the squad in 2013. But the 31-year-old has had limited playing time under the caretaker manager playing just three minutes in six matches Solksjaer has handled. Fellaini may likely not be in the plans of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or the new boss next season considering his age. the Belgian star would hope to continue his career in China if a move should materialize in the summer.
