‘Jose love him. I don’t understand’ – Man United fans left puzzled by reported £8m midfielder exit on social media
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be headed for a January exit according to reports in England.
In fact the Mirror claim that the Belgium international will join Besiktas after an £8 million transfer fee was agreed.
Fellaini has under 12 months remaining on his contract and has yet to sign a new deal so reports of him leaving the club are not that far fetched.
Still, Jose Mourinho was a vocal supporter of Fellaini.

We took a look at how fans reacted to reports that the powerful midfielder could be on his way out.
United fans seemed a bit confused by the reports. Jose Mourinho appeared to be keen on Fellaini so why is he tipped to leave in January?
I don’t understand why Fellaini is suddenly leaving? José loves him. I don’t understand?

Not sure how I feel about Fellaini possibly being sold in January because I’ve grown to really like him and he is a valuable member of the United team IMO

Why would we sell Fellaini to Besiktas in January when he’s become an actually useful player this season? #Rantcast

Would Mourinho be ok with Fellaini leaving?
Jose will fume if Fellaini goes but tbh, ya can’t change club policy for fuckin Fellaini

Or is Mou playing a game?
Mourinho always says things like to increase the players’ market value. He then off loads the player at the first opportunity. Watch.

Expect a social media storm, the ‘Come To Besiktas’ campaign went viral over the summer. It could be back this winter.

The £8 million price tag raised a few eyebrows among Besiktas fans.

Would the transfer of Fellaini mean the end of Atiba? or could they play together?
This Besiktas fans feel if anything, the United fan should be Atiba’s backup.
Atiba Hutchinson > ManU

Pepe > Manu
