Everton’s Belgian international is reticent to sign a new deal and club’s boss, David Moyes, is reportedly worried that the talented midfielder will attempt to force the club to sell him when the transfer window reopens, and 18-time Premier League champions Manchester United are certainly planning to pounce on that.
Everton have been facing troublesome financial problems and selling their big-names might be the key way for them to balance the books.
With Leighton Baines and Jack Rodwell both very likely to leave the club, Marouane Fellaini looks set to join them after expressing his dissatisfaction towards the way things have been going through at Goodison Park.
Manchester United are currently topping the list to sign the 23-year-old as Owen Hargreaves will most likely leave the Red Devils in the summer when his contract comes to an end. In fact, Sir Alex Ferguson has also been busy searching the transfer market due to the fact that his veteran midfielder Paul Scholes is set to retire soon.
