Man United blow as five clubs swarm £80k-per-week player following failed contract talks

According to Corriere dello Sport, Italian Serie A side AS Roma are one of five sides in the race for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

The 30-year-old, who has made over 140 appearances since his 2013-move from Everton, looks on his way out of Old Trafford after rejecting two contract extensions. And with the Belgian international out of contract in the coming months, The Sun believe five clubs are battling it out for his signature.

In addition to Roma, domestic rivals Juventus and Inter Milan are also eyeing up the midfielder. Besiktas were linked weeks previously, while we reported Galatasaray’s interest on Thursday. Fellaini has hardly featured for United this season, making just three Premier League starts under Jose Mourinho.

The Belgian is one of four midfielders with an uncertain future at Old Trafford, with Paul Pogba being linked with Real Madrid, Ander Herrera being linked with AC Milan and Michael Carrick retiring this summer. Fellaini is bottom of the pecking order, however, with Nemanja Matic, Pogba and Scott McTominay preferred in the engine room.

And with United unable to tie the £80k-per-week man down to a new deal, his summer exit looks inevitable.
