Marouane Fellaini a target for AC Milan this summer, but only if he lowers his wage demands

Marouane Fellaini looks set to leave Manchester United this summer, despite manager Jose Mourinho wanting the Belgian to remain at the Old Trafford club. After scoring the winner against Arsenal just over a week ago, Mourinho spoke about Fellaini remaining at United, suggesting that he still wanted it to happen. Then, late last week, Fellaini spoke to media in Europe effectively saying United left it too late to keep him, despite reports of a new contract being offered late last year.

The Belgian midfielder has been courted by Besiktas, AS Monaco, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, West Ham United, and even Leicester City. There are even suggestions that Chinese Super League clubs are willing to pay massive amounts of money to lure Fellaini to their league. The Belgian is a very useful player to have, which is why Mourinho seems to want to keep him, despite United supporters always moaning about him. It seems that they need not moan anymore.

Italian side AC Milan are said to be interested in Fellaini, who will be available as a free agent from the 1st July 2018 with Genaro Gattuso’s side seeking a player to boss their midfield next season. Fellaini seems to be that player, apparently. However, it is not all clean cut with many teams interested in the player, the wages he is currently paid at United are not something that will be matched by the Milan side, which is fair enough. Fellaini is not getting any younger and cannot demand huge wages, but it seems to be the case.

It has been stated that Milan has not approached Fellaini or his agent at this time, which suggests this is little more than a rumour at this stage. The 30-year-old has clearly had enough of United and wants a new challenge elsewhere. I will be sorry to see him go as he has been integral at times over the past two seasons, under Mourinho anyway. Obviously, United will be unhappy to see the player leave on a free after spending £27.5 million on him on deadline day in the summer of 2013, but it is time for a new era at Manchester United.
