Marouane Fellaini is ready to snub the chance to reunite with David Moyes at Sunderland as he’s keen to prove himself under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, according to reports from the Independent.
The big Belgian has been a divisive figure since his arrival at Old Trafford in 2013, with his physically imposing playing style having drawn criticism.
After being heavily linked with a move both last summer and in January, Fellaini has emerged as a target for Moyes, who took him from Everton to Man United, but reports claim that the 28-year-old is keen to stay put.
It’s understood that Mourinho has indicated to the powerful and versatile midfielder that he has a chance of earning a role under him at Old Trafford, and the ex-Toffees ace is keen to pursue this.
Fellaini was a favourite of Louis van Gaal during his time at Man United, with the Dutchman often using him as a withdrawn striker due to his aerial ability.
