Personal terms agreed, Manchester United to confirm transfer of £80,000-a-week midfielder

Manchester United are reportedly close to confirming the exit of midfielder Marouane Fellaini to Turkish giants Galatasaray.

The Belgium international has already settled personal terms with the Istanbul outfit, and the deal is expected to go through in the next 24 hours.

Fellaini, 29, has largely struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford, netting just 18 goals in 133 outings between 2013 and 2017.

In a report on Ajansspor, Gala sporting director Cenk Ergun has confirmed that the enforcer is on their radar, and there could be plenty more surprises with the likes of Fernando, Sofiane Feghouli, and Hatem Ben Arfa also eyed by the Turkish club.

The Belgian was offered a one-year extension via a clause in his £80,000 a week contract in January, and it appears that United took the decision in order to offload him for a decent price this summer.

With Nemanja Matic strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford, Fellaini’s future has been put into the question and claims that the player has already put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the Super Lig club.

Fellaini has been in and out of the starting lineup in his four seasons at Manchester with 28 of his 89 league outings coming from the substitutes’ bench.
