Manchester United’s fierce rivals Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Marouane Fellaini for free in the summer.
The Belgian international’s contract runs out at the end of the season and despite Jose Mourinho insisting he wants to hold onto the player, no negotiations have taken place.
Fellaini has been linked with several clubs, particularly in Turkey but the Red represent one of the more unusual of options.
Mourinho made it clear what his intentions are for the player but it’s been said that the midfielder wants to be a regular first team player and understands it’s not possible at United.
With the World Cup happening this summer in Russia many though the former Everton man’s future would be dealt with quickly but it’s proven to be far from it.
According to Newsweek, L’Equipe report that Liverpool want to offer Marouane a three year contract to lure him to Anfield and beat their competitors PSG and AS Monaco.
Jurgen Klopp is unlikely going to be able to promise the tenacious midfielder any more game time Jose could so the transfer seems unlikely.
Marouane Fellaini would also perhaps be aware that signing for the Red Devils’ rivals isn’t the best thing to do, especially with his history of playing for Everton.
All in all it just seems improbable that he would remain in England unless it’s to a smaller club who can promise game time.
Turkey appears to be the more likely scenario given the promise of football as well as that the clubs there are able to watch his high wages.
