Manchester United new-boy was desperate for move

Marouane Fellaini

New Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has revealed how he was always looking for a transfer away from Everton this summer, as reported by Sky Sports.

The Belgian international helped his country comfortably beat Scotland on Friday which ended the perfect week for the 25 year old.

Fellaini’s move to Old Trafford narrowly beat the 11pm deadline last Monday which finally gave David Moyes his first big signing since his own summer switch from Goodison Park.

The combative midfield man knows he will have to fight for a place in the United midfield but admits it was always his aim to push through a move across the North West in the summer.

“It was a great week for me. It was nervous on Monday, but I have my transfer and I won with Belgium, so I’m happy.

“When I started the campaign with Everton, I looked forward for a transfer and in the end I am happy.

“I look forward to playing with the players. I need to work hard for my place. I want to win something with Manchester. I want to play a lot of games and win a trophy.

“It will be tough, every year it is tough for the big teams. But I think Manchester United have quality to win the trophy. I look forward to this.

“It’s a big step for me. But I have played for five years in England, I know the league and I know the players, so I don’t think I will have a problem with this move.”
