Mourinho’s departure ‘hurt’ Man United player, could leave in January, three clubs following him

Earlier this month, we relayed news from Turkey that Fenerbahce have opened talks with Manchester United for Marouane Fellaini after they found out the midfielder does not fit Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.

The Belgium international came close to leaving Old Trafford as a free agent last summer, but continued at the club after he was handed a bumper new deal, one which runs down in 2020.

AC Milan were one of the clubs interested in taking the 31-year-old on a free transfer and Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad now claims the Serie A outfit are ‘back in the running’ for the former Everton man.

It’s further mentioned the Rossoneri are not the only club following him as FC Porto and Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande are also watching the player.

Fellaini was one of the players highly appreciated by Jose Mourinho and the sacking of the Portuguese tactician has ‘hurt’ him.

Having just played three minutes under Solskjaer, the possibility of Fellaini leaving United in the winter market is not excluded.

Porto links seem almost laughable unless Fellaini would be prepared to take a huge pay cut.
