- In latest Manchester United Transfer News, Maroune Fellaini is set to sign a contract extension with the club
- The midfielder’s new contract will run until 2020 and will be announced on July 1
In what will come as a mixed bag for the club’s supporters, Latest Manchester United Transfer News sources suggest that Maroune Fellaini is ready to sign a new contract with the club. The midfielder, who is currently on international duty with Belgium at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, will extend his expiring contract by two years and commit until 2020.
This Manchester United latest news will come in as a bit of a surprise as Fellaini did not reveal much while speaking to the press in Dedovsk before Belgium’s match against England. “I know where I am going to play next season but I will only reveal that on July 1,” he said at the press conference, while sounding a bit mysterious.
Fellaini is still mum on his future
The journalists present in the room and those outside immediately started speculating with the Latest Man Utd Transfer News mills abuzz with activity. Would it be Arsenal who are known to be long-term admirers of the big Belgian? Or AC Milan? Or a Turkish or even a Chinese club? There were all kinds of rumours regarding Fellaini’s future that will now die a natural death.
For the English journalists, in particular, everything seemed possible but an extended stay at Old Trafford was improbable as Fellaini had seemingly turned all advances from Jose Mourinho who wanted him to stay at the club for some more time.
Amid the media speculation, Fellaini smiled and said: “There will be clarity (about my future) during the World Cup. Wait and watch.”
According to reliable Belgian outlet HLN News, Fellaini is now very close to extending his stay at Manchester United – a club where he has played since 2013. He has had his differences with the supporters and a lot of detractors as well but Jose Mourinho remains a big fan of the 30-year-old’s qualities and has been instrumental in the Belgian’s decision.
Further, Fellaini also feels at home in Manchester in every possible manner and harbours the ambition of winning the Premier League for the first time. With Mourinho and Romelu Lukaku, that is certainly possible and has led the tough-tackling midfielder into making a turnaround and signing fresh terms with the Red Devils.
“Uncertain about my international future beyond the World Cup”
Amid his club future, Fellaini’s international future with Belgium has also been a topic of discussion for a while now as he had said in the run up to this tournament that he would stop playing after the World Cup but quickly swallowed those words as he stated: “I have not made a decision yet. I’m thinking about it but it depends on a lot of factors.”
“If we win this World Cup, I think many guys would soon announce their farewell from the team,” Fellaini joked.
Furthermore, he revealed that manager Roberto Martinez’s future plans will also play a big role in his path ahead with the national team. What role does the Spanish tactician see for the Fellaini after the World Cup? “I will speak to the manager after the World Cup. So far no talks have happened,” he said.
Whatever be his international future, Fellaini’s club future seems sorted as a contract extension with Manchester United is likely to be announced to the world on Sunday (July 1).
