Premier League: Letting Marouane Fellaini leave Manchester United would be a mistake
If Manchester United were to let Marouane Fellaini leave in this transfer window, it would be a mistake. Plain and simple. He offers a great deal to the squad in terms of versatility and adding an extra dimension, so to move him on would be short sighted to say the least.
We now know that AC Milan almost certainly won’t be taking Fellaini this January. Rossoneri chief executive Adriano Galliani recently confirmed that while he is a keen admirer of the player, there is “no way” that an agreement will be struck.
But what was disturbing is that so many United fans were jumping for joy when it looked like the Belgian was actually going. And those same people will be praying that something else comes up before the deadline on 1st February.
The question is why?
Fellaini has had a raw deal off supporters ever since he joined United. That is, barring a few weeks in March and April in 2015 when he was in an excellent run of form, perhaps highlighting the fickle nature of many modern ‘fans’.
