Old Trafford side clinch Goodison Park powerhouse signing.
Man United have reportedly completed the last minute purchase of long term target Marouane Fellaini with the Old Trafford side paying £27.5m for the 25 year old midfielder according to the Daily Mail.
David Moyes has been tracking his former Toffees charge for much of the summer and having failed with two combined bids for Fellaini and team-mate Leighton Baines it appears that the Premier League title holders have won the race to sign the Belgian international.
Moyes brought Fellaini to Everton on deadline day in the summer of 2008 in a £15m deal and was clearly intent on reuniting with the attacking midfielder, who should add a fresh dimension to his Man United squad.
Fellaini has impressed during his five year spell at Everton and the midfielder can offer a steely presence in the centre of the park whilst also offering a very real goal threat to boot.
Everton have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Wigan Athletic’s James McCarthy to replace Fellaini in Roberto Martinez’s side.
Fellaini has made 177 appearances for Everton, scoring 33 goals in the process.
