Former boss Jose Mourinho was a huge fan of Belgian international Marouane Fellaini and United opted to hand the midfielder a new two year deal in the summer.
However, now, the ex Everton star finds himself in a complex scenario at Old Trafford under the management of interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
According to an exclusive report covered by Mirror Sport, the veteran midfielder is closing in on leaving the Red Devils, who are ready to agree his exit for a fee of around £15million.
Transfer: £240,000-a-week star tempted to sign for Manchester United
Since the appointment of the Norwegian manager, the tall 31-year-old midfielder has only warmed the bench and featured for just three minutes in the league (vs Cardiff) and twenty eight minutes in the 3rd Round FA Cup tie vs Reading.
In the last two league games vs Newcastle and Spurs, he was not even included in the Match Day squad.
Mourinho usually utilized Fellaini as a super-sub if his Plan A was not working. In the presence of the Belgian, United played a lot of long balls but those deliveries are no longer required under Solskjaer.
We are now playing attractive attacking football and in this system, there is no place for long balls and a slow player like Fellaini is definitely not needed.
So, I think that the United faitfhul would not mind if the Former Toffees star, who is earning around £100,000-a-week (The Star), leaves the club this month.
In your opinion, should United sell Fellaini?
