Funny how much things can change.
Won't get a better deal elsewhere, he's also rode through tough times here, there's zero chance he's going to leave when it looks like things are coming together under a manager that puts so much faith in him. Nor will he find a club as big.
What a load of bs.
Sure he's useful now, but fighting for his signature..?? He would bite our hands off for a new contract
He's played a lot under Mourinho and is an integral part of the squad now. I don't see it being a struggle to keep him.
I'd say this is his level (squad player for a top team) unless he wants to take a gamble and move to Napoli, Roma or a club of that ilk.
Just us playing games with his agent in the press is my guess.
If he is offered a deal by Mou, he will sign. Sensationalism again by Duncan.
If we get 50m for him, Mourinho's a genius
Fellaini strikes me as the kind that is grateful to be here, the article even quotes him saying he would break his leg for Mourinho. The problem might be that he was signed on mid 20s, first team wages by Moyes and now we're looking to offer post 30's impact sub wages. Should be able to find a middle ground.
I would have thought he'll stay, but I can see why he might want to go somewhere where he will be one of the main men, rather than a highly thought of reserve/plan B. This is the risk of joining a club the size of United - Fellaini and Ashley Young were both the stars of their respective teams, and viewed very much as amongst the biggest players in the league. Fast forward a few years and their profiles have dropped considerably, in spite of playing a lot of games for United.
There you go, it's probably his last big contract and therefore he wants it as long and as big as possible. United however would surely prefer about 2 years and less money. In the end, i think they will come to an agreement, Fellaini is Mourinho's most trusted and loyal soldier, he will get his wishes granted, IMO.
If he signs great - if he doesn't thanks for the memories big man.
It's up to him and his ambition. If he wants regular first team football he'll step down to a smaller team. If he's willing to fight for a first team place he's welcome to stay (never thought i'd type that).
In what world would anyone pay £50m for Fellaini?
Considering Castles is Jose's unofficial PR man I don't believe anyone at United is worried about Fellaini's situation. We either keep him as long as Jose wants him or we sell him for ridiculous money.
No one can fight with us for him. Real, Barca, Juve and Bayern aside, we are the biggest and best club. We have the best manager that would want him and we can financially out muscle anyone.
In one of the paralel universe where united bought him for 36m
Tony Pulis if he got the Arsenal job.
I don't think that's true. He's currently on 80k per week and is holding out for 130k per week! This gangster is looking to be paid.
That's a sentence I never thought I would ever hear/read.
He wants regular football. He's not guaranteed it here.
How much does he want?
Kudos to Fellaini. He's proven himself over and over again, especially now as very important and useful squad member.
Also seems like a typical Mourinho player (not just in style/size) in the sense of his bravery. Mourinho wants players who's loyal and will run through walls for him. So it seems Fellaini is one of those in Jose's eyes.
I think it is more a case of wanting to play week in week out, a mid table club will give him that chance we can't. From what I heard one of the big reasons for his trying to move to Turkey in summer was the bald idiot Belgium have wants Fellaini playing every week.
The world were Liverpool bought the Ox for £40m.
Was about to write that. Jeez, 40 for Ox?!?! In that case, £60 for Big Fella, take it or leave it. And if he scores few more, and probably will, price will go up.
Cut our losses. Let him go
I imagine Duncan Castles counts down the seconds of every single half time, hoping that 15 minutes strikes to publish a story called "SHOCK as United threaten to NO SHOW for the second half"
Fight from whom? Real madrid or barcelona?
You been living under a rock for the last few months? He's easily worth that in this current (and stupid) market.
Anyone want to bet he scores the winner against Liverpool?
would not surprise me in the least!
I'd imagine what we are offering should still eclipse what he might be offered by clubs in Italy and Turkey.
Love the guy, but he's not irreplaceable.If he wants to leave, its quite alright.
No way he is going anywhere if Utd are willing to have here longer..
Bizarre story. We use Fellaini properly now and he's a really good quad option when used right, but a "fight to keep him", yeah I don't see us fighting that hard. He'll get offered a decent contract but if Fellaini wants to leave, Mourinho will let him.
His contract is up at the end of the season, so if he doesn't renew then we won't be selling him for any fee let alone a ridiculous one.
He's 30 come the next transfer window, has 9 months left on his contract and has universally been seen as a bit of a joke for most of his United career by the majority of your fans, a small purple patch of goalscoring form and an effectiveness in the air doesn't make him a £50m player based on all that, even in today's market.
Nobody would be THAT bothered if he left.
Whilst he’s proving to be a useful player this season. He certainly is not a player that is irreplaceable in some form.
Good luck getting anything close to that elsewhere. Imo he doesn't have any leverage in this.
Sorry, my point is that I don't believe we are concerned about his situation therefore we won't let his contract run down. He will be signing a new contract as Jose rates him, then if he does go it will be for plenty of cash.
I wouldn't fight too hard. He's a decent utility player that's flavour of the month now but a team/club like United shouldn't be fighting to keep mediocre squad players they should be aiming higher.
Admittedly he doesn't look bad now in a team full of confidence and winning, he didn't look so comfortable when it wasn't so rosy. I'd not take him on a free, and that's made all the worse when you consider he's got the donkey duo of Hendo and Wijnalldum as competition.
