Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be on the verge of securing a shock move to Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Bookmakers Coral, this bizarre transfer might genuinely be on the cards, as they have slashed the odds of the Belgian international moving to the French capital from 5/1 to 11/4.
In fact, Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead was quoted as saying: “Many may have laughed when first hearing Fellaini being linked with the French giants, but punters are putting their money on it and it seems as though there is real substance to the rumours.”

To keep hold of the player, United boss Jose Mourinho has already tabled an improved deal worth £150,000-a-week, as per Star Sport.
However, the towering midfielder has straightaway refused to commit his future to the Red Devils.
Speaking before Christmas, the ex-Everton man had revealed: “Manchester United made me a contract proposal and I think they will make an another one. I don’t know yet if I’ll accept it – we will see.”
It seems likely that Fellaini will depart from the Theatre of Dreams come summer, and when he does so, he will face no shortage of parties looking to secure his services.
The bookmakers have priced West Ham, managed by Fellaini’s former boss David Moyes, at 14/1, whereas the Gunners as well as the Toffees are outside bets at 25/1.
