Fellaini offered deal to leave Manchester United this month

Marouane Fellaini has reportedly been offered the chance to leave Manchester United, despite only signing a new contract last summer.

The Belgian moved to Old Trafford in 2013, becoming the first signing of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era as he followed David Moyes down the M62 from Everton.

Despite his primitive playing style, Fellaini has actually been a key player for all three of Manchester United‘s managers since Ferguson, with Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho all utilising the 31-year-olds height and physicality as a weapon.

However, Fellaini has seen just three minutes of football under current United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has brought back some free-flowing, attacking football to the 13 time Premier League champions, with the 31-year-old seemingly having been shunted down the pecking order by the Norwegian.

He was close to leaving the club last summer but performed a last-minute turnaround to sign a new two-year deal, but according to Turkish outlet AMK Spor, he has been offered a chance to leave this month, with Fenerbahce ready to swoop.

They claim that they have offered the midfielder an 18 month deal worth around €7.5 million, and are awaiting a response from his advisors.

During his time at United, Fellaini has scored 22 goals in 176 appearances, including two this season.
