Manchester United may face a dearth of midfielders next season. After Michael Carrick announced his retirement, Jose Mourinho confirmed that a replacement will be signed.
But to add to their woes, Herrera and Fellaini have been linked with exits as well, with the latter in particular proving increasingly hard to keep hold of.
The Belgian midfielder has rejected multiple efforts to extend his contract. Sources claim that in order to stay on at Old Trafford, Fellaini will only sign a two- or three-year-long extension which will see him make over £100,000-a-week.
However, it is understood that United have made only one attempt to renew, but only for a one-year deal, which Fellaini has outright refused. And now, he may have dropped the biggest hint that he will, in fact, leave the club.

As per the Mirror, he moved out of his Cheshire house on Saturday, prior to United’s FA Cup defeat to Chelsea. Incidentally, the former Evertonian was not a part of the squad either.
This has led many to believe that his career at United is all but over. With heavy and lasting interest from Turkey pending, his next destination may be clear.
Besiktas have had the longest interest in securing the services of the 30-year-old. Although, Marseille and Monaco are also said to be keen on signing him.
More recent sources have suggested that he can also move to the Serie A, with AC Milan having allegedly made an offer. Further still, the player is believed to have generated immense interest from China as well.
This is despite Mourinho repeatedly stating that he values the player highly, and that he is a vital cog in the manner in which the side functions late on in games.
But at this point, it seems highly unlikely that he will stay on, and Mourinho may already be on the hunt for an able replacement.
