Former Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy has advised wantaway midfielder Marouane Fellaini to stay put at Manchester United.
Given Jose Mourinho’s admiration of Marouane Fellaini, it was always expected that Manchester United would be handing the midfielder a brand new contract and they did so by offering him new terms of around £120,000-per-week recently.
Surprisingly though, Fellaini is said to have rejected the offer on the table from United and is instead eyeing a more lucrative move to Turkey, where Besiktas are interested in acquiring his services.
Former Liverpool man Craig Bellamy has been left perplexed by Fellaini’s stance though and has now gone on to advise the Belgian international that he would be making a mistake by leaving United in search for a better financial package – especially considering the Red Devils want to keep hold of him.
“If Manchester United want you and they’re willing to extend the contract you take it,” he said on Sky Sports show, The Debate.
“A lot of players now get offered three-year contracts unless they’re at a very young age, then they tie them up at a longer deal. The way I look at it; it’s still Manchester United.
“It’s one of, if not the, biggest football club in the world. I’m of the firm belief that you don’t leave there. They tell you when you leave. He might have a better financial offer but he won’t have a bigger club.”
