They tried to lure him away from Old Trafford last summer, that didn’t work out, but they have anything but lost heart. Besiktas continue being interested in signing Marouane Fellaini, as a member of their board of directors told Turkish media.
Fellaini is on our list, we have made efforts to sign him but not just him. He is not the only player we scouted, our scouting team watched 20 games live this week
Metin Albayrak said, confirming that the Istanbul club is after the Manchester United midfielder, but being quick to point out that he is not their only target.
Transfer plans never end, we are always working. We are keeping tabs on several players. The club has plans for Turkey and Europe, there are negotiations. We want to make the signing for the winter transfer window or for the end of the season
the Besiktas official also said. The Turkey champions may be interested in the Belgium international, but Jose Mourinho has made it clear on a number of occasions that he considers him far too important to let go, while the player himself has repeated several times how big his motive to win the Premier League is.
