Breaking: Top Six European Clubs Battle For This Manchester United Outcast

Is Manchester United doing the wrong thing by allowing Marouane Fellaini to leave the club this summer? There are a host of clubs who are keeping tabs on the Belgian international despite being considered a flop with the Premier League giants.

Fellaini began his career at Standard Liege back in 2006 and was picked up by David Moyes at Premier League club Everton where he made a big name for himself in England.

As a matter of fact, Fellaini had a great start for United this season after struggling with injuries that had a stop-start effect on his career which made the fans turn on his once again.

However, as Fellaini discusses his departure from United, there are six potential clubs that want to swoop up the 30-year-old midfielder and secure his services according to his agent.

Serie A champions Juventus are currently frontrunners to lure Fellaini at Turin as the two are parties are in the process of negotiating his wage deal.

Fellaini is currently on a £80,000 a week deal at Manchester United but could demand a higher fee from the club that he moves to in the summer.

Bar Paris Saint Germain who is also interested in Fellaini there is Monaco, Besiktas, West Ham United and Leicester City who are also interested in Fellaini’s signature and he would certainly manage to get more games under his belt if he plays at any of the last four clubs, which demand main traits of physicality from their midfielders.
