Despite a number of years of mediocrity and fan displeasure, Marouane Fellaini has started the new season with Manchester United superbly. In fact, the Belgian has been one of the star players in Jose Mourinho’s side during the first few games of the campaign.
And now, rumours are gathering that the 29-year-old will be rewarded with a brand new contract at Old Trafford.
Since arriving at the club in 2013, Fellaini, who is valued at £10.8million by Transfermarkt, has endured some really tough times. At one point, his presence on the field was so unwanted, United fans actually booed him onto the pitch in a substitute appearance.
However, the former Everton man has seemingly turned his fortunes around and some excellent displays have seen him become a genuine favourite amongst the Old Trafford faithful.
Upon hearing the rumours of Fellaini’s potential new contract, United fans took to Twitter to express their delight…
Here's something you never thought you would read. Shows Fellaini's huge improvement and importance to the team. Hope we agree a deal https://t.co/NA7bX7lw7h

He deserves a pay rise and a contract extension. He's been so far very professional and helpful.

I think Old Trafford love him now, Liam. Voices around Old Trafford chant his name every game now, and he certainly deserves nothing less!
