Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini hopes to follow David Moyes to Old Trafford this summer according to the Daily Mirror.

The 25 year old may well be just the type of player Man United target this summer with this source making the most of comments made by Fellaini related to his desire to adopt a more defensively minded midfield position, one that Moyes has apparently suggested the powerful battler adopts in the future.

Fellaini is expected to leave Goodison Park this summer just as long as any interested party is willing to meet the player’s £23m release clause.

The Toffees star has wasted no time in talking-up the possibility of working with Moyes again in the future, stating;

“If I’m leaving Everton, I say if, it will depend on lots of factors,”

“I only want to go to a club where the manager ­really wants me. In 2008, Everton did everything to convince me, especially David Moyes. He made me the player I am now.”

On the issue of a possible positional change Fellaini added;

“I’m happy with my ­season, although I didn’t play in my best position,” said Fellaini. “I’m not a number 10. David Moyes predicts my future as a ­defensive midfielder, but due to a lack of offensive power, he plays me up front.

“In the future I want to play as a six or an eight. From there, I can create danger and score goals.”

Fellaini has had his most effective Everton season to date this term, netting a dozen goals, but a move away from the Merseyside club seems very likely. The midfelder has consistently stated his desire to play Champions League football and as such would presumably jump at the chance of a move to Man United.

Moyes may well feel the need to freshen up his midfield. Paul Scholes is retiring, Darren Fletcher continues to recover from long term illness and the jury is still very much out on Anderson, who has had another stop/start campaign.
