Manchester United are set to remain true to their resolve to keep Marouane Fellaini, despite reported contract offer rejections and stories of his transfer away from Old Trafford.
The towering midfielder arrived in Manchester as one of the first signings following the appointment of David Moyes. Since then, Fellaini’s United career has been a variable that fluctuated even to this date; from getting jeered by the club’s fans themselves to becoming their Europa League hero.
Though the Red Devils’ faithful have contrasting opinions on the Belgian, he has proved to be a decent servant for the club. Jose Mourinho seems to have a particular liking for the former Everton man, and he once went on to claim that Galatasaray had a better chance of signing him that the midfielder.
On the other hand, it seems like the Belgium international, who has already scored 4 goals for his club this season, shares the opposite feelings towards the Mancunian giants as of now, after reportedly rejecting the proposed contract extension.
Nevertheless, according to BBC Sport, Mourinho’s side is keen on keeping the 29-year-old.
Though the Old Trafford outfit is aware that Fellaini is heading into the last 9 months of his contract, the report claims that the club will not sell him in January, despite the looming risk of losing him for nothing at the end of the season.
