Four reasons Fellaini is the perfect signing for Sunderland

According to Daily Mail reports from last week, Manchester United are willing to listen to offers for Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

United will welcome any potential suitors for a permanent deal this January with Sunderland one of the clubs mentioned along with West Ham. However, the Wearsiders are reportedly restricted by their transfer budget this winter.

Nonetheless, if David Moyes can convince the Sunderland board to part with the necessary funds to sign the towering midfielder, it could prove a masterstroke by the former United manager.

Any potential move would see Moyes and Fellaini reacquainted for the third time in their careers, as the duo have previously worked together at both Everton and Old Trafford.

Linking up once more at the Stadium of Light could be a decisive factor in the club surviving another season in the top flight. Here are four reasons why Sunderland must sign Fellaini in the coming transfer window.
