The Manchester United fans are packed into the Transfer Tavern today ahead of the club’s cup clash with Burton Albion later this evening.
Indeed, our resident Red Devils are in a rather good mood right now after a strong start to life in the Premier League and are wholly expectant of a win this evening.
With that in mind, our United-mad punters can focus on reports emanating from ESPN today.
According to their report, Jose Mourinho wants to tie up a new contract for Marouane Fellaini before the end of this year, with the Belgian able to discuss a move away to another country from January onwards.
While the 29-year-old is believed to be happy with life at Old Trafford, there is thought to be a fear that a lucrative offer from either Turkey of China could tempt the former Everton man into a move away.
Though he’s proven to be a divisive figure at United over the years, Fellaini does genuinely seem to have an important role under Mourinho this season.
Tying Fellaini down to a new deal does make sense for United. Able to change the game from the bench, losing him for free would be a nightmare and there’s certainly a place for him under the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’.
