Belgian midfielder could be set to stay at Goodison Park.
Interested clubs are running out of time if they hope to secure the services of Marouane Fellaini this summer according to The Sun.
The Everton midfielder has been linked with a host of top Premier League sides over the past couple of months.
Manchester United were thought to have been favourites to sign Fellaini following the departure of former Everton boss David Moyes to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford hotseat.
Arsenal and Chelsea are also thought to have shown an interest in the player.
Fellaini has been an integral part of the Everton team in recent seasons but has recently hinted at his desire to play at a higher level.
A move was widely expected to go through this summer due to a clause in the player’s contract allowing him to leave should Everton receive a bid over £22 million.
But it now appears that clubs are running out time if they hope to sign Fellaini as the clause expires on the 31 July.
At that point, Everton will be able to dictate their own price for the player, which considering his import to the team, will almost certainly lead to a price increase.
United have been distracted by their pursuit of Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas but may wish to turn their attentions to Merseyside sooner rather than later.
