The 26-year-old Belgium international had a torrid time at Old Trafford last season, with fans willing to let the him leave for half the £27million then manager David Moyes used to bring him from Everton.

Louis van Gaal has reportedly labelled Fellaini as not being a ‘United type of player’, which has fuelled speculation of his departure.
