AC Milan see loan swoop for Man United’s expensive flop rejected

Fellaini 3Manchester United fans have expressed their surprise at one report this morning, as they debate transfers in the Transfer Tavern over a glass of the last mulled wine we have in stock.

Football Italia cites a pair of reports in Italy that indicate AC Milan are extremely keen on Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini and have seen a loan swoop rejected by the Red Devils.

Belgian international Fellaini has struggled to impress at Old Trafford and finds himself out of Louis Van Gaal’s first-team plans, whilst he’s been surprisingly deployed as a makeshift forward at times during the season.

Milan are said to be tracking Fellaini but the price is a huge stumbling block, with the Italian side unable to afford his €25m asking price and annual wages of €3.5m.

Manchester United rejected the loan move swiftly when it was proposed, though they are open to an exit for Fellaini but only if a permanent offer is made.

Should Man United let Fellaini leave on-loan? Let us know in the comments below!
