Transfer: Manchester United midfielder could move to Turkey in a shock move

Turkish club Trabzonspor are reportedly in talks with Fellaini over a move in the Summer.


Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini could turn into a subject of an unexpected move in the upcoming Summer transfer window after it emerged that Turkish club Trabzonspor are want to sign him.

Fellaini accepted a further continuation of his earlier contract in January when Manchester united extended the additional one-year option in the midfielder’s agreement. According to that contract, the Belgian’s time at the Old Trafford is up to next year. Mourinho was reportedly happy with the player’s professionalism and growth and apparently was ready to offer him a new contract.

Fellaini joined Manchester United from Premier League rivals Everton for £27.5m in 2013 under then-chief David Moyes, however, since then he has been an upsetting figure often among the fans because of his inconsistent performance.

And now in a current disclosure, it has emerged that Turkish club Trabzonspor are ready to lure the midfielder away from Old Trafford as they want to sign a new midfielder in the next season.

The Super Lig side will enlist their 50th year next season and are ready to mark the year with a few major big signings. Their club boss Muharrem Usta declared in an announcement that they are enquiring the possibilities of signing some big name players and analysing Fellaini’s situation at the club and furthermore following the condition of CSKA Moscow midfielder Bibras Natkho and Villarreal forward Roberto Soldado.

“We are focusing our efforts on signing a midfielder and striker,” Usta told Takvim, via Turkish Football. “We are looking for players who will improve the team and help fill our new stadium. The midfielders we are in talks with are Fellaini and Natkho. We are also in talks with the striker Soldado.” 

The midfielder has shown up 45 times in all rivalries this season under Jose Mourinho and has scored four goals, including an outstanding header against Celta Vigo in the Europa League semi-final a week ago.
