Everything comes in big portions when it comes to Marouane Fellaini, whether it’s his stature, work rate or even his hair and now he may just have a massive price tag to add to the list.
Everton’s midfield powerhouse is being linked with a megabucks move away from Goodison Park with Chelsea and Manchester United looking the likely destination for the big Belgian.
But for a rumoured £30million, is he worth the big money?
A couple of barnstorming performances at the start of the season have really raised Fellaini’s reputation and price tag. Labelled as unplayable in Everton’s 1-0 win over United at the start of the season. His dominance in the air, composure on the ball and decent scoring record have alerted Europe’s elite to a player that can win you games.
He’s certainly seems to have caught the eye of a man who’s business is winning games, Sir Alex Ferguson may be set to break the bank and bring Fellaini to Old Trafford as he attempts to retake the Premier League crown.
His powerful presence in midfield could just be the catalyst that could take United to the next level. Fellaini is unlike almost any player in the Premier League and certainly different to most of Fergie’s other options. The Red Devils do seem to be lacking a bit of physicality in the midfield with Cleverley and Scholes, so the Belgian would make a welcome addition to the squad.
He’s a presence in both penalty areas would add some much needed steel to United’s defence as well as a more direct option going forward. Fellaini would certainly be a useful signing for any team, but for £30million Fergie could have his pick of midfielders across Europe.
It’s a lot of money to pay for a player that hasn’t consistently performed in the Premier League, but his early season form shows that he could become a top player.
For me, I think Fellaini would be a very worthwhile acquisition for Fergie and could make the difference in the title race for his contribution in both attack and defence. However the price tag may just be a little too big, even for Fellaini.
