Manchester United misfit finally set for exit from club

As reported by The Daily Mail, Marouane Fellaini could be set to end his time at Manchester United with both Milan clubs interested in bringing him to Italy in January.

What’s the word?

Fellaini is having a real struggle to establish himself in Mourinho’s Manchester United side and his Old Trafford misery could be set to end as soon as January.

The Mail reckon that Fellaini has already travelled to Italy and has discussed with his teammates about the switch to Serie A. With just 18 months left on his United contract, the Old Trafford club have failed to offer him new terms.

Earning a reported £120,000 per week, that’s no surprise given he’s been unable to make any real impact at the club since signed by David Moyes.

Fellaini and Mourinho

The big midfielder has only made 8 Premier League starts under the new Man United boss this season with many fans considering him one of their worst performers.

Often a scapegoat for poor results, one of fans’ main criticisms of Mourinho before they turned a corner with better results was the managers insistence on featuring him at some point throughout matches.

This stat from Squawka shows that the bad feeling for the midfielder may be justified with United having a significant better win percentage when he’s not featured for the team.

It’s a fairly damning summary of his time at United. Still he does have quality and would likely enhance many teams not just in the English Premier League but abroad too.

A new club could represent a resurgence for a player highly thought of when he was at Everton.
