Although the January transfer window slams shut, in the UK, at midnight tomorrow night, there could still be a deal engineered, after that, which could see a Manchester United player leave the club.
Yesterday news broke, as reported by the BBC, that our Belgian international midfielder, Marouane Fellaini, could be heading to China.
Fellaini, 31-years-of-age, has, according to our referenced source, agreed to terms with the Chinese Super League club, Shandong Luneng.
However, despite Fellaini having agreed to personal terms with the club, there is no immediate urgency to close the deal with the transfer window, in that part of the world, not closing until 28th February.
Although Fellaini signed a new two-year deal, back in 2018, he’s never managed to hold down a regular place in the starting eleven.
Our quoted source is also reporting that Manchester United are not saying whether a transfer fee has been agreed for the player or whether it is an ideal opportunity to remove the players’ salary from the payroll.
However, here at Vital Manchester United, we’re of the opinion that a move might be in the best interests of both parties, Fellaini moving on would give the player regular first-team football whilst also opening up a place in the squad for one of our youngsters to come through.
We’ll keep our eyes open for any further developments in this one and report back as deemed necessary.
