Manchester United could potentially lose the services of Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini on a free transfer, The Sun claims. The 29-year-old has impressed during the first four games of the new season, finding the scoresheet in the 2-0 win over Leicester City.
Fellaini had been linked with a potential move to Galatasaray earlier in the summer, but Jose Mourinho dismissed the speculation by citing that he is ‘too important’ to his plans.
The 29-year-old has since earned a regular run from the substitutes’ bench, but according to The Sun, Fenerbahce could pinch for his services on a free in 10 months’ time.
Fellaini has managed over 130 appearances during his four-year spell at Old Trafford, but he has not always been a favourite among the club’s faithful.
The 2017/18 season, has, however, started on a good note for Fellaini with impressive performances off the bench, although he is still not guaranteed a starting spot in the Premier League.
Fellaini would be free to speak with foreign clubs at the turn of the year, but Fenerbahce are still said to have a tough task in hand with Mourinho likely to consider a suitable extension for the Belgian.
The former Evertonian is currently on international duty with Belgium, who take on Gibraltar and Greece in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
