Serie A clubs and city rivals Inter and AC Milan are reportedly set to go head to head to sign Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini from Premier League giants Manchester United.
Marouane Fellaini has found the going tough at Manchester United this season. Playing at the Theatre of Dreams has been a stuff of nightmares for the Belgium international of late as he has come under fire from Manchester United supporters on several occasions for his lacklustre displays at the centre of the park.
English media outlet Daily Mail have now reported that the nightmare for Fellaini could soon be over, and the Belgian could be on his way out of Manchester United as both Inter and AC Milan are said to be monitoring his situation at Old Trafford. In fact, Mail also pointed out that Fellaini is seriously considering a move away from the club and was spotted in Milan on Monday with his twin brother Mansour.
Fellaini has seldom been in the good books of the Manchester United supporters ever since his £27.5 million move from Everton on the deadline day in the 2013 summer transfer window. Things have only gone from bad to worse for the midfielder this season, and he has seemingly reached the point of no return.
The latest incident saw him being booed by United fans as he warmed up during the match against Tottenham Hotspur nine days ago, a week after he gave away an unfortunate penalty that resulted in a late 1-1 draw against Everton at Goodison Park.
Several reports have now stated that it has been communicated to Fellaini that the combative Belgian midfielder has no future at the club and he won’t be offered an extension on a deal that runs out in 18 months. The United hierarchy would prefer to sell Fellaini instead of loaning him to another club.
One of his former suitors, AC Milan, along with fierce city rivals Inter, are interested in the signature of Fellaini, and it looks like he will be one of several players out of the Old Trafford exit door in January with Manchester United willing to listen to offers for Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin as well.
