Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford according to reports
New manager Louis van Gaal is believed to be unwilling to make Fellaini a part of his future plans and has urged Ed Woodward to sell the Belgium international in this transfer window.
The 26-year-old arrived at Old Trafford on a dramatic deadline day transfer after Manchester United failed to land their initial target Ander Herrera. But Fellaini, like his former Everton manager David Moyes, failed to make a significant impact on United’s fortune and also struggled with his fitness throughout the season.
Fellaini made 12 starts in the league and failed to score a goal in any competition. The Belgium international was often used by Moyes as a second striker, and a target man, at Everton and that is where is best arrived. But he struggled to integrate himself into the United midfield and failed to justify the big transfer the Red Devils paid for him.
Now with the arrival of Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford Fellaini’s future has come under a lot of speculations. Reports suggest that the Dutch manager believes Fellaini is not a ‘Manchester United player’ and has urged the club to sell him in this summer.
Manchester United have signed Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw and are expected to continue their spending spree. A host of midfielders have been linked with the Red Devils this summer as Louis van Gaal tries to eradicated United’s long standing problem at the center of the park, but he feels that Fellaini is not a part of the solution.
The former Anderlecht midfielder is currently preparing for Belgium’s quarter-final clash against Argentina and feels that he has nothing left to prove after playing for eight years at the top level.
“I don’t have to prove (anything) – I’ve been a professional footballer for eight years.” – The Manchester United midfielder said.
When asked about his future at the English club, Fellaini said: “We will see after the World Cup”.
