According to reports emerging from papers in Italy, Manchester United’s unsettled midfielder Marouane Fellaini is in talks with Italian giants AC Milan over a potential move to the Estadio San Siro this winter.
According to the reports coming out of the Italian news agency Calciomercato, AC Milan’s joint-CEO Adriano Galliani is set to hold talks with Fellaini’s agent Luciano D´Onofrio later this week to see if a deal is possible. Although the £19m rated Fellaini and his agent prefer a loan deal to be worked out, Manchester United are apparently hoping for a permanent move to take place.
Current Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has used Fellaini sporadically this season, with the Belgian making just 12 appearances in the league all season. Given Fellaini’s travails this season, it perhaps comes as no surprise that the former Standard Liege man is looking for a way out of the football club in the need for more regular first team football.

A move away from Old Trafford might not be such a bad thing for Fellaini
Signed by the former Manchester United manager David Moyes for £27.5 million from Everton, Fellaini has failed to win over the Old Trafford faithful. The Belgian International, who has managed to find the back of the net 7 times in 54 appearances made for the Red Devils, has often been criticised by many United fans for his ultra physical style of play.
With United fans criticising Louis van Gaal’s team for playing “boring” football in the first half of the season, and Fellaini hardly getting an opportunity to play regular first team football, a move away from Old Trafford for the burly Belgian might not be such a bad thing.
