The Belgian’s contract is set to expire next summer, and if the Red Devils fail to establish a concrete deal with him, he would be free to hold talks with overseas clubs from January.
Fellaini generated interest throughout Europe after he rejected United’s contract extension, and while multiple clubs have already set their sights on the Belgian, PSG seem to have taken a step further, after having already offered the 30-year-old an attractive deal.
It was reported by Le10 Sport (via Metro News), that the former Everton star held “secret talks” with the French club, and was offered a tempting deal to make a move to Parc des Princes.
It was further claimed that the four-year contract that was submitted to lure the Belgium international does not specify his weekly wages, but given the stature of PSG, a hefty salary might be in the offing.
United, on the other hand, though eager to hold on to Fellaini, are unlikely to hand him a deal similar to the one given by the Ligue 1 side.
And if no deal is agreed between the player and the Old Trafford outfit, PSG would then be able to secure the midfielder’s signature by signing him on a free transfer next summer.
The towering Belgian has made a total of 11 appearances for the English giants this season, in which he has scored 4 goals and registered an assist.
