Midfielder not good enough for Manchester United, says high-profile pundit amidst transfer rumours

Posted by

BBC pundit Ian Wright has suggested that it’s obvious that Marouane Fellaini isn’t good enough for Manchester United, as rumours of the player’s exit swirl.

The former Arsenal striker, speaking on BBC Sport  [as per The Sport Review], has insisted that there’s a certain level of quality and standard required at United, and that the Belgium international just isn’t cutting it…despite contributing the assist for Wayne Rooney’s winning goal against Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

“You can see that there is a certain quality and standard that have come through Man Utd,” the high-profile and occasionally outspoken host began.

” You look at Fellaini, as much as he did get the decisive header that set up Rooney on Sunday, the way he is and the way he plays, he doesn’t feel like he proves his point that he is a Man Utd player,” Wright continued. “He isn’t doing enough where you can see the Man Utd traits in him.

“You can see it in Anthony Martial and Ander Herrera.”

According to talkSPORT [citing Calciomercato], the forward could be on his way soon, with the suggestion that some in the Red Devils hierarchy potentially agree with Wright’s summary.

The report states that the club have informed potential suitors they are willing to offload the powerhouse midfielder, and would accept any offers that meet their £19 million asking price [fee via talkSPORT as per Calciomercato].

The Belgium international moved to Old Trafford from Everton in 2013, and while he was likely signed to contribute a presence and goals from midfield—he bagged 11 in his last full season at Goodison Park—but has scored only seven league goals since moving to Manchester.

talkSPORT, referring to the Italian source, have revealed that AC Milan are keen on the former Standard Liege man.
