Manchester United agrees £8m deal to sell Marouane Fellaini

Manchester United have reportedly agreed an £8 million deal to sell Marouane Fellaini in January.

The Belgium international’s current contract with United expires at the end of the season, and reports claimed last month that the midfielder rejected the club’s offer of a new deal.

The Sunday Mirror now claims that United have reached an agreement with Besiktas to sell the 29-year-old in the upcoming transfer window.

Jose Mourinho has been told he needs to offload players before he can buy, and United are ready to cash in on Fellaini as he will have just half a season left on his deal.

United are looking to sign replacements for Fellaini and are keeping tabs on Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred. But United will face competition from several top European clubs for the Brazilian, and are likely to pay a high price as the 24-year-old’s contract expires in 2021. United are also open to offers for Luke Shaw, and reports claim that a £20 million bid would be enough to end the defender’s time at Old Trafford.
