Marouane Fellaini open to move

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has admitted that he would be open to a move away from Merseyside, but will be happy to stay at the club if no offers come in for him.

The Belgium international has been praised of late for excellent performances in the Premier League and for his nation, and as such Chelsea and Real Madrid are thought to be monitoring the £20 million-rated man.

Fellaini has confirmed that he is unaware of any offers for him as yet but is ambitious to play in Europe.

“If I have got to go, I will go, if not, I repeat, I am at Everton,” he told Belgian radio station RTBF, translated to English by Sky Sports.

“I am ambitious; I want to play in the Champions League or in the Europa League. Last season we finished seventh with Everton, and we were not able to qualify us for Europe, which was a shame.

“If an ambitious club comes in for me? Why not, just to gain experience but I’m on vacation right now, I do not give [speculation] too much attention.

“Every year they say I’ll be transferred to the left or right. But I’m still at Everton.

“If it comes, I take, if it does not come, I stay at Everton, where I am happy, and where I still have a four-year contract.

“Everything goes fast in football. You can be transferred tomorrow, as you can be in one or two years. For now, I’m on vacation, I try to arrive fresh at the start of next season. If there are any concrete offers yet? If this is the case, I am not aware.

“They talked about me in Chelsea? If I had to go there, I would have several friends – Hazard, Lukaku, De Bruyne, Courtois … There are many Belgians! It’s good for the national team,” he concluded.
