His fourth season at Old Trafford was the best one, in the sense that he played much more under new manager Jose Mourinho, but it looks like his stay at Manchester United is not considered a ‘must’ by the Portuguese coach. At least, that’s what Galatasaray’s director said.
[Maroune] Fellaini will leave Manchester United and he is now on our radar. There will be surprises, we are in talks with Fellaini
Cenk Ergun told Ajansspor, confident that the Belgium international’s days at Old Trafford are numbered.
We have made an approach, we are close and if we get Fellaini we will end our pursuit of N’Diaye. We need a player like Fellaini who can move around in midfield
Ergun also said, mentioning Villareal’s Alfred N’Diaye, whom the Istanbul side has been trying to sign for some weeks now, but failing to strike a deal with his club.
Fellaini made a total of 47(!) appearances for United last season, Mourinho gave him lots of game time often asking him to do the… dirty job others were either unable or unwilling to do, the Belgian delivered (at the best of his ability), but even so, it looks like he could be on his way out.
