Manchester United apparently have no plans to extend Marouane Fellaini’s contract beyond 2018 when it is set to expire, according to the Metro.
The 27-year-old is keen to remain at Old Trafford beyond the next three years, but a report in the Daily Star claims that the club see the Belgian international as expendable.
Sources close to the club have suggested that United could be tempted to recoup a portion of the £28million they paid for Fellaini in 2014 next summer as he predominately features from the bench under Louis van Gaal (via Metro).
The Metro state that Fellaini has started just one game for the Red Devils this season, while he was sparingly used by David Moyes during his time in charge.
Fellaini has been forced to pull out of the Belgium squad for the upcoming friendlies against Italy and Spain, after van Gaal confirmed that he had picked up an injury during training on Friday (via Sky Sports).
