Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has held last ditch talks with Marouane Fellaini as he desperately tries to tie the Belgian down to a new contract according to reports today.
We brought you the story last month that Fellaini had sensationally rejected a £120,000-a-week, two year deal to stay at Old Trafford, with the player looking to move on elsewhere.
The midfielder is out of contract in the summer and is free to sign a pre contract agreement with a foreign club as early as next month.
Fellaini has developed into one of Mourinho’s most trusted players, and has often been the go to player in the absence of £89m man, Paul Pogba.
Mourinho admitted in recent weeks that there is a chance that the midfielder will leave in the summer, but according to The Sun, the Portuguese boss is doing everything he can to keep him at the club a little longer. They claim he has held face to face ‘crisis talks’ in a bid to persuade the Belgian to stay. He is thought to have assured him of regular game time. A club source told the newspaper that it could just down to a matter of cash on offer.
He has been linked with a move to PSG, Valencia, Arsenal and Besiktas.
