Manchester United trigger contract extension

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has triggered a clause in the contract of Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian was out of contract this summer after initially signing a four-year deal upon his arrival at Old Trafford under former manager David Moyes for £27.5million.

Many people have tipped Fellaini to be one of the first names onto the transfer list under both Louis van Gaal and then Jose Mourinho, but he has instead gone onto establish himself in the managers plans.

Mourinho has now triggered a contract extension clause in the midfielders contract to keep him at Old Trafford until 2018.

He had been linked with a move to AC Milan next summer.

He was widely criticised earlier this season by Manchester United fans after giving away a late penalty against his former club, Everton, just moments after coming onto the pitch as a substitute. He has since been booed by his own fans and only scored his first goal of the season during Tuesday nights EFL Cup victory against Hull City.
