Man United “Highly Unlikely” To Meet Star Midfielder Wage Demands Amid Reports Of Talks With Euro Giants
Manchester United are highly unlikely to meet the wage demands of Marouane Fellaini according to the Independent.
Per the source, Fellaini’s representatives are anticipating a second offer from United but an agreement is unlikely to be met.
The Fellaini camp reportedly already turned down one contract extension offer from United and are not short on offers from abroad with clubs from Turkey, Italy and Spain expressing an interest.
Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho is keen on Fellaini staying on and has publically backed the midfielder.
Fellaini was closely linked with a move to Galatasaray over the summer but Mourinho ruled out an exit.
“It’s easier for Galatasaray to get me than to get Maroaune,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by Goal over the summer.
Fellaini will however, be a free transfer at the end of the season unless a new agreement is reached.
The Belgium international’s representatives want around £125,000 a week – a fee United are unlikely to match.
The report states that Besiktas, Valencia and Juventus are among the sides interested in Fellaini.
