Star midfielder favours Manchester United move

Everton's Belgian midfielder

Marouane Fellaini would opt for a move to Manchester United over Arsenal were both clubs to launch a bid for him this summer, according to the Evening Standard. 

The Everton midfielder’s future has been the topic of constant speculation since the close of the season, with United, Arsenal and Chelsea all linked with a move for the Belgian.

Fellaini has a reported £23.5million buy out clause in his contract, something new United manager David Moyes knows all about having agreed the deal with him while managing Everton.

Although it is understood the clause expires in less than a month, meaning Fellaini is faced with an anxious wait to see if either club launches a bid.

United currently seem to have their sights set on Cesc Fabregas, while Arsenal have other targets in mind also, and have so far been quiet on the matter.

Were both clubs to launch a bid however, it is understood Fellaini would relish the opportunity to be reunited with David Moyes at Old Trafford. The Belgian blossomed into a Premier League star under the Scot, who signed him from Standard Leige in 2008.

Incidently, Fellaini also currently lives in Manchester and is thought to be settled in the North West.

Everton are currently resigned to losing their star man, but are hoping no bid comes in before the release clause is triggered so they can play hard ball over the sale and potentially rake in more money.
