While it’s true that Marouane Fellaini has fought hard to remain a part of Louis van Gaal’s plans while not being cast out as David Moyes’ mistake, we do fear for his long-term future.
As we all know, United moved to significantly strengthen their central midfield in the summer with the double capture of Bastian Schweinsteigr and Morgan Schneiderlin and with Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera and Andreas Pereira to call upon too, we think Fellaini won’t be gaining his regular central midfield slot back any time soon.
Of course, over the course of a season, teams need to rely on big squads and the likes of Fellaini to negotiate several fixtures, especially over the festive programme but with Fellaini being utilised as an emergency centre forward already this season, he’s nothing but a spare part in van Gaal’s overall philosophy.
Make no mistake; Fellaini is an accomplished Premier League pro displayed in abundance during his Everton spell and with sides surely going to be interested in his availability, we think United should cash in while using his funds to buy another striker or centre half.
