Belgian Fancies £23.5m Man Utd Move Over Arsenal Switch

By on July 18, 2013

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini would snub a switch to Arsenal in favour of a move to Manchester United, according to the Independent.

Both us and United have been strongly linked with a move for the giant Belgian in recent weeks with the 25-year-old understood to be keen on playing for a club in the Champions League after five seasons with the Toffees.

Although neither club has made an official offer as yet, the Independent suggest both Arsene Wenger and David Moyes are contemplating triggering his £23.5m release clause before it expires on the 14th of August.

However, it seems Fellaini has his eye on linking up with his former boss as the newspaper claims that should both Arsenal and United match his asking price, the Belgium international would choose a switch to Old Trafford as he’s already living in Manchester and is settled in the area.

I had no idea Fellaini lives in Manchester so if this report is accurate and he’s happy in the north West, then it’s going to be extremely difficult for Arsenal to compete with United if we do both make a move for the midfielder this summer.

Moyes appears to be determined to strengthen his midfield options before the window closes and has already been linked with Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, Kevin Strootman and Luka Modric this summer, so a move for Fellaini could well be on the cards. However, our main focus appears to be a striker and links with any central midfielders have quietened down of late, so a move for Fellaini might be off the table for now.

Personally, I’d be gutted if he ends up going to United as I think he’d be an excellent addition to our squad, but we’ll have to see what Arsene has in store for us before the window clams shut.

    we could always test his resolve by triggering the release clause couldn’t we? our transfer inaction has been absolutely pathetic. woeful. we’re not even getting linked with anyone new at the moment. at this rate we’ll end up with darren bent on a free and a midfielder who has to go out on loan for year before he get a work permit. absolutely pathetic.
