Ironically, the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern this evening have cheered reports emanating out of Italy that Marouane Fellaini could be on his way to Roma almost as much as they celebrated his opener against Everton on Saturday.
The Belgian will perhaps always be synonymous with the dreadful season David Moyes was in charge at Old Trafford, arriving as the Scot’s only signing in the summer he took over.
Due to his physical and direct style of play, the 28-year old hasn’t always proved to be the most popular player at Old Trafford in the near enough three years he has been on the books.
Now, reports from Gazzetta Dello Sport claim he was in attendance for the game between Roma and Napoli ahead of a potential summer move to the Italian capital.
With midfielder Radja Nainggolan widely linked with a move to Chelsea, the Serie A giants could be ready to move for the former Everton as they look to refresh their midfield ahead of next season.
Is it time to cut Fellaini loose? Or is he a useful Plan B?
