Fenerbahce are set to make a move for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

Despite being an integral part of Jose Mourinho’s setup, the Belgian international has seen his importance go down drastically under new interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The midfielder does not fit into the Norwegian’s free-flowing attacking tactics, as evident from the short amount of game-time that has come the 30-year-old’s way.

Fellaini has only featured for three minutes under Solskjaer, as a late substitute in Manchester United‘s 5-1 win over Cardiff City. He was subsequently dropped from the match-day squad altogether when the Reds traveled to Newcastle earlier this week.

The Süper Lig giants are prepared to offer the former Everton star an 18-month contract worth €7.5 million.

The report adds that the initial response from the player’s camp has been nothing but positive, and both parties are now waiting for Fellaini’s go-ahead before finalising a deal.

Further, Fenerbahce are confident that if the midfielder agrees to the move, they can easily reach an agreement with Manchester United over a permanent transfer.
