Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has dropped a big hint that he could leave the club this summer, with the admission that he wants to play Champions League football.

The Belgian has been a star performer for the Toffees this season, but it hasn’t been enough to guide the team into the top four of the Premier League. It has, however, led to interest from a number of bigger teams in signing him in the summer.

The 25-year-old has previously been linked with Arsenal, but could now be a target for Manchester United after it was announced that Everton boss David Moyes would be taking over as manager at Old Trafford from the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson next season.

Moyes has been linked with a raid on his current club, with Fellaini and left-back Leighton Baines standing out as key players who could add something to the United team.

According to the Metro, Fellaini wants to reach the Champions League with Everton, but despite his intentions to stay loyal to the team, a move somewhere else could be tempting for him.

“Every player wants to play in the Champions League. That is the big competition,” he said.

“I hope I can do it with Everton. I’m happy here. I’ve been at the club for five years. I’m happy because I know everybody.”

Fellaini has 12 goals in all competitions this season, and is rumoured to have a minimum release fee clause of around £25million.
