Manchester United slap £24m price tag on in-demand midfielder

Manchester United have slapped a £24million price tag on Marouane Fellaini amid interest from Serie A, according to reports from the Mirror.

Fellaini has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent weeks, with AC Milan already having a loan offer for the midfielder turned down by the Red Devils.

The Belgian has struggled to play on a regular basis under Louis van Gaal during the first half of the season, and the 28-year-old knows that he needs to find first-team football or risk losing a place in the national team ahead of Euro 2016.

However, United are unwilling to let Fellaini leave on a loan deal, and want at least £24million to facilitate an exit.

Milan are also joined by Juventus, AS Roma, and Inter in the race for his signature, but any interested parties must meet the asking price to sign the former Everton star.

Fellaini has only made 10 Premier League appearances this season, scoring one goal.
