Man Utd in talks with Chinese club over Marouane Fellaini


Manchester United are in negotiations with a Chinese club over the transfer of Marouane Fellaini, Sky Sports News understands.

The 31-year-old has been at Old Trafford since arriving from Everton in 2013 and was an important figure during Jose Mourinho’s reign.

Fellaini was rewarded over the summer with a new contract which is set to run until 2020, with the option of a further year.

But Fellaini could now be on the move after falling down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, playing just 31 minutes since the Norwegian was installed as United interim boss.

According to Sky sources, a Chinese club is in talks with United over a permanent transfer.

Premier League clubs cannot sign players after Thursday’s 11pm transfer deadline but teams in China are able to complete deals up until February 28.

Fellaini’s Belgium international team-mate Mousa Dembele left Tottenham to sign for Chinese Super League club Guangzhou R&F earlier this month.
