Fellaini At Risk

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be on his way out of the club – sooner rather than later.

That’s the verdict of TalkSport presenter Jim White who claims the Belgium international has been “on the outside looking in” since Jose Mourinho’s departure from Old Trafford.

Fellaini’s size marked him out as a typical Mourinho player but he has fallen down the pecking order since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed interim manager. His only appearances since the Norwegian took charge were as a substitute in the victories over Cardiff City in the Premier League and Reading in the FA Cup.

“It’s now become apparent Marouane Fellaini can go amid talk Solskjaer is unhappy with his attitude,” White told his listeners on Monday.

“It’s my understanding he could go in this window and so might Scott McTominay, but it’s clear that Fellaini, and specifically Fellaini, is on borrowed time.”

De Gea Wants To Stay

Meanwhile, David De Gea is waiting for a £300,000-a-week contract offer before he pledges his future to Manchester United.

The Spain international keeper is out of contract at the end of next season and is more open to a new deal now that Jose Mourinho has left the club.

Talks have been ongoing between De Gea’s representatives and the United hierarchy. But De Gea is looking for a contract worth £300,000 a week before he puts pen to paper. He is currently on around £200,000 a week.

In November the club activated a clause extended his current deal to the end of June 2020.
