Manchester United’s incoming manager Louis van Gaal reckons that David Moyes’ flop deadline day signing Marouane Fellaini is surplus to requirements, and has encouraged the club to sell him, the Daily Mail reports.
The Belgian midfielder cost £27m from Everton less than 12 months ago, but the legendary boss, who will take over the reigns at Old Trafford when he’s finished his World Cup duties with Holland – wants Fellaini sold.
The powerhouse 26-year-old endured a miserable debut season at Old Trafford, and fans reckon that he doesn’t have the technical ability to perform in a United midfield.
The club have already signed Spaniard Ander Herrera for £28m, which seemingly would push Fellaini further down the pecking order.
As a result, van Gaal has told chief executive Ed Woodward that Fellaini ‘isn’t a United player’, and the club are likely to offer him to sides around Europe.
The Red Devils will be extremely lucky to get anywhere near the money they spent on him, but many fans will simply be pleased to see him moved on before the start of the 2014/15 campaign.
