Marouane Fellaini now has an 80% chance of completing his transfer to AC Milan, as per Belgian outlet DH.
Jose Mourinho made several attempts to keep the midfielder at Manchester United, but Fellaini appears to have made his mind up, as he looks set to part ways with the Red Devils this summer.
The player has attracted enormous interest from a host of football clubs from all around the world, with the likes of Besiktas, Marseille, Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain, and several Chinese clubs pursuing his signature.
However, according to Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg, Fellaini is on the verge of joining AC Milan, with the 30-year-old’s transfer to the Serie A club already being 80% complete.

Fellaini was supposedly prepared to extend his stay in England had Manchester United offered him a lucrative contract that lasted for at least 3 years, but the Mancunians refused to offer him a deal lengthier than 2.
But Milan are prepared to table a 3-year deal for the Belgium international, with Fellaini likely to accept it, as he aware that it could very well be the final big contract of his career, at least on the European stage.
However, the two parties as still in discussions over the salary demands, with the 30-year-old asking for €10m a year in wages – something Milan are concerned about.
DH further adds that the while the discussions are in very advanced stages, Fellaini is in no hurry to get this deal done and dusted before the commencement of the World Cup.
