£80,000-a-week star wants fresh contract talks with Manchester United: report

Belgium international Marouane Fellaini is reportedly prepared to hold a fresh round of contract talks with Manchester United. The midfielder’s current deal is due to expire in the summer but he has yet to rule out a possible extension.

According to The Times, Fellaini is willing to hold fresh negotiations with the club’s hierachy where he is expected to demand a two-year contract on top of wages of around £100,000-a-week.

Fellaini’s contract has remained unresolved since his contract snub in September 2017, but in a surprise turn of events on Sunday, Jose Mourinho confirmed that the club are rather ‘close‘ to sealing a contract extension.

United have a policy where players above the age of 30 are not issued a contract of more than 12 months,  but they could be prepared to relax this rule on Fellaini, who remains one of the Portuguese’s favourites.

Fellaini has been associated with a potential Bosman move to Besiktas of late, but as things stand, he is prepared to extend his United stay, should his transfer demands be eventually matched.

The £80,000-a-week star netted the match-winner against Arsenal last weekend with a stoppage-time header and this has taken him to five goals for the campaign – his best-ever tally since the 2014/15 season.

  1. £80,000-a-week star wants fresh contract talks with Manchester United: Of course he does anyone would look at the salary of Sanchez and say, “Hey I put in a shift as good as his and mostly better I want the same respect in hard cash.” Human nature but this problem has been caused by Mourinho the regression of young talent all down to him, unsettling established players by favouring and rewarding one who has not been with them since the start of the season and one who is not showing signs of being any better than the players at United before he was purchased and getting less game time because of his purchase. You do not pay an employee more than anyone else and have them sit at home doing nothing so he has to play choose what he is contributing to the team on the pitch.
