Manchester United’s £80,000-a-week could quit for one key reason: report

According to the Express, Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is turning down a contract extension due to the length being offered to him.

The Belgian international reportedly wants more years attached to a deal before he signs it, but United aren’t willing to meet his demands. Fellaini could be leaving for free at the end of the season if he and the Red Devils can’t come to an agreement and interest from Galatasaray and Roma could turn his head.

The 30-year-old joined United from Everton in 2013 and has made 150 appearances in all competitions. Fellaini signed a five-year-deal at the time and is coming to the end of it without knowing where his future lies. Express have named two clubs as potential suitors, but United are keen to keep him.

Galatasaray are believed to have offered a three-year-deal worth £150k-per-week, while Roma have contacted the midfielder’s representatives ahead of a summer approach. United only want to extend his deal by 12 months, but Fellaini wants more insurance as he could be signing the last big contract of his career.

A move to Galatasaray would keep him in Turkey until 2021, earning a total of £21m for his trouble. Juventus and Inter are also linked but there’s been no official bid lodged for the £80k-per-week man.
